Thanksgiving 07, Part I

So the cooking festivities began last night with a spontaneous trip to Williams Sonoma for a food scale (which I’ve been wanting for about a year and a half now…woooooooo!) and the making of Cranberry Ginger Relish.   Recipe from Everyday Food, November 2007 issue.

Serves 8

  • 1 bag (12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar or red-wine vinegar


  1. In a large saucepan, bring cranberries, sugar, ginger, and 2 tablespoons water to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until most of the cranberries have popped, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in vinegar.
  2. Remove relish from heat. Let cool to room temperature, and serve (or refrigerate in an airtight container up to 3 days).

It came out really well. Here’s a pic of my cranberries, bubbling away!
