Top Review by Sydney Mike

During the end-of-the-year holiday season, I make a variety of cranberry sauces & usually enjoy them all, & although this relish isn't necessarily my favorite, it does make for a very nice change of pace, & an enjoyable one, at that! Both of us really appreciated the flavor combo with the cranberries & figs, & it will be made again (perhaps as a holiday gift) since I have several friends who would really RELISH this one! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Newest Zaar tag]
