I haven’t always been a cranberry orange relish girl. I too liked those jelly can lines that go with turkey. Then one day a friend made homemade relish, and even though it wasn’t the same, I liked it even better!

So can lines, no can lines. You DON’T have to draw the line. Try it all! The plate’s big enough.

If you come over and want the canned stuff, that’s fine. I probably have one in the back of the cupboard, and it still has a couple years before it expires.

Happy cooking!
