Oh, cranberries: the tart addition to every Thanksgiving table. While cranberry sauce tastes oh-so-good on your Thanksgiving turkey, it sometimes struggles to find a place with all those leftovers. Enter, cranberry relish. This sweet cousin to cranberry sauce is perfect for adding a little holiday flavor to your food all year long.

Because cranberry relish is a little sweeter than your average cranberry sauce, it is a great alternative in many cranberry recipes. If you’re looking for inspiration, we’re highlighting some of the best cranberry recipes that work perfectly with cranberry relish!
