I had the best mother-in-law ever!!! Dottie is her nick name but I call her Dorothy. She was a sweet, cute, tiny lady. When I met her she was a retired nurse. Nursing was the perfect career for Dorothy because she loved and enjoyed people. She liked to plant flowers and watch birds. Not only does her daughter-in-law sing her praises but her children and grandchildren believe her to be pretty awesome too. My life is richer and fuller for having known her. I love her and miss her very much. Surely she is in Heaven arranging her jewels in her mansion!!!
Dorothy always made Fresh Cranberry-Orange Relish during the holidays. I had never heard of it before, but let me tell you…it is absolutely delicious!!!! Just the right amount of tartness from the cranberries and sweetness from the sugar and the citrus from the orange just makes it POP with flavor…its a PARTY IN YOUR MOUTH!!! It’s great just by itself but when you put it on a Sister Shubert roll with a slice of turkey…you have reached another level of PARTY IN YOUR MOUTH!!!
Dorothy’s Fresh Cranberry-Orange Relish has become a holiday tradition in my home. I make it a few days ahead for Thanksgiving Day and freeze half of the recipe for Christmas.
