For the Holidays, we serve up several different cranberry sides. This is more of a relish dish and absolutely satisfying. The combination of orange juice & pulp, apple, cranberries, fresh ginger just dance on your palate. It even makes a great pie filling as well. :) A recipe I will share soon.

This dish can be made ahead of time as well. Just store in the refrigerator. Or serve up warm. Goes great on butter fresh bread!

Happy Thanksgiving all!!
