Heard this recipe on NPR and was pleasantly surprised that the strange ingredients garnered such a great cranberry dish. All credit must go to NPR's Susan Stamberg who shares this recipe on air every year at Thanksgiving time.

    I, too, got this recipe from NPR years ago and have made it with great success. I can guarantee you that it is delicious. The color is a bit surprising (the same shade of pink as Pepto-Bismol!) but the taste is wonderful: the tartness of the cranberries, the bite of the onion and horseradish mellowed by the coolness of the sour cream and sweetness of the sugar.<br/><br/>Try this one, folks.
