Oh my gosh! I've heard about this for years also, but as no holiday dinner is in play I determined to give it a try. This is mid-summer, in GA, and I've just got to get those cranberries out of the freezer! I whipped this recipe up, approximating quantities, and it is just LUSCIOUS! It has not even made it back into the freezer per directions. Probably won't, either! Many thanks, KelBel, for putting it on Food.com

Made this for Thanksgiving and was a huge hit with the adults, though the little ones wouldn't even try it, they are soooo picky. The color alone was a spectacular addition to our table and the adults loved it and can't wait to try it on left overs. It came together easy and I enjoyed that it is made ahead and that's one think that's done prior to the big day. This will certainly be on our Christmas table too but think I'll have to remember to also add our regular sweet one too for the smaller guest. Thanks so much for posting.

My family would revolt if this wasn't a part of the meal! Many thanks to Susan Stamberg of NPR for broadcasting this "shocking pink" relish recipe years ago, and many more thanks to KelBel for making it easy to find here on 'Zaar!

Great recipe. I made turkey sandwiches using "stuffing flavored" fresh bread and this spread, the sandwiches were great. I used some dijon instead of the horseradish.

My mother asked me to make a cranberry relish for Thanksgiving, and then hinted that she wanted Susan Stamberg's mil's relish made as she has heard it so many times. I made it the night before and froze it, and then pulled it out in the morning (as the recipe on NPR suggests). It was a little spicy, a little sweet, and a little tart. Really wonderful with meat. I can't wait to try it on sandwhiches. I used fat free sour cream and it worked just fine. Great surprising recipe!

I'm so glad I finally tried this! It was terrific. All these years I've heard Susan Stamberg describe it, and thought it sounded just terrible ... but she was right, it's great. This is a definite keeper. The only way I tweaked it was to use light sour cream; I don't think it changed a thing. Thanks so much for posting it!

Every year I hear Susan S. recite this recipe. It has become a tradition for me... fortunately it is frozen and keeps, because I am the only one in our family who likes it... but I like it a LOT. A little bit goes a long way. This recipe holds me through Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thanks for sharing it with us all. It is very easy to make, and has a zippy flavor.

Oh wow is this wonderful! I had bags of frozen cranberries in my freezer that I wanted to use up (yes frozen cranberries work fine for this!) I cut the complete recipe in half, I had to increase the sugar to 1/3 cup for half of a recipe, just personal preference, but the next one will be a full recipe, it is so good! I'm using this with turkey sandwiches, I love this Kel, thanks so much!...Kitten:)
