Timing is everything!
I delivered a rug to a client just in time to taste-test her awesome pre-Thanksgiving cooking!
I couldn’t have timed it better!
Besides trying her fantastic roasted turkey gravy, she was making her famous Cranberry/Pear Relish. It is so famous, her friends had already begun calling to see if she was making it this year.
Her house smelled amazing — cranberries, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. The perfect spicy/sweet that says the holidays are here.
She has allowed me to share this wonderful side dish with you! I hope you enjoy this dish and your holiday season!
Cranberry / Pear Relish
If the amazing scent of cranberries and spices doesn't get you, the bold flavor will!
