This recipe is best made at least 1-2 days in advance. It will easily keep for at least a week if refrigerated.

Every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's my Mother made this cranberry relish--without fail. We had two, large, heavy crystal goblet style dishes that she used to served the relish in - one at each end of the table. Now, my younger sister and I each have one of the goblets so we carry on our Mother's tradition.
