Fortunately, this year, I have a jar of the gravy base... I am good. My daughter was set on having that relish for her sandwich. We looked all over EP to find a jar. Unless, we wanted something with green chili mixed in... we were out of luck. Here is the substitute recipe I doctored around with. We will definitely make this again next year. Who knows, maybe next week. Turkey gravy is next on my list to conquer.
1 bag cranberries
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
1 apple, peeled and diced
1 cup maple syrup
2 oranges, zested and then the juice squeezed into the pan
maybe an 1/8 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
Bring to a boil and simmer about 15 minutes. Try to crush the pomegranates and cranberries as they cook. However, they will naturally crush and burst as they cook. Next time, I will also chop the apple in smaller pieces.
I plan to pour it over a block of cream cheese and use a wheat think as the vessel. I am now ashamed to say I have bought the jarred stuff previously. The hardest part was zesting the oranges. I am still not sure if I did that correctly.
Until next time friends, I hope you all find something to be thankful for other than the cranberry relish!!
