There is usually at least one recipe that gets passed down through the generations. Every Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember, we have always had Cranberry Relish at the table. This recipe is from my grandmother’s recipe box (on my mother’s side). The yellowed, stained, and dog-eared card tell a story of potentially hundreds of holiday dinners, family gatherings, and memories formed. My grandmother was born in 1908 and sadly passed just a few years short of her 100th birthday. She had a good run of things… we like to think it was her ritualistic evening cocktail that kept her young (or at least that’s what I’m betting on, considering my own habits). She was elegant, giving, and always exuded an air of grace. I don’t know where she obtained the recipe – if it was passed down to her or she found on her own, suffice it to say, this Cranberry Relish recipe has stood the test of time.
Do you love bread? Do you love cheese? Well then I’ve got a sandwich for you! Pairing my all-time favs of rustic bread and gooey cheese with a briny olive relish and some serious portions of salami, mortadella, and capicola make this one big daddy of a sandwich.
