The battle of the cranberry sauce

As Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, I have Trader Joes cranberry orange relish on my mind. I said relish NOT sauce.

My boyfriend and I were talking about cranberry sauce today and he was telling me how he has never had a liking for it. When I asked him why, his answer was: “My dad pops it out of a can and just slaps it on his plate.” Well, my question was answered.

Nobody wants cranberry sauce out of a metal can that has been on the shelf for who knows how long. Filled with preservatives and excess sugar this is not real cranberry sauce.

This Thanksgiving try something new, take a trip to your local Trader Joes and purchase a container of cranberry orange relish. Fresh cranberries pop up in every bite and there is a sour and sweet taste that complement each other. Don’t forget to serve it chilled! 🙂
