Hello everyone! I hope you all are doing great. After all, it’s almost the weekend, and you’re probably planning some holiday baking this weekend. That being said, let’s keep it sweet and short this time. Besides, this Cranberry Almond Relish is so splendidly luscious and festive that you will probably want immediately make it.

When I was planning this idea, I didn’t expect it would turn out so delicious. In fact, this Cranberry Almond Relish was supposed to be the part of another recipe (Please stay tuned), but I realized it deserved an individual spot. And while waiting for that announced recipe, you can serve the relish with this Beef Mushroom Chestnut Stew.

First, the onions get quickly caramelized with the butter and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, honey, rosemary, and almonds. Then add the fresh and dried (For the added sweetness) cranberries and freshly grated nutmeg and cook until juicy, thick. and shiny. The aroma that spreads in the kitchen is phenomenal! So Christmassy and delightful, as I mentioned earlier, you can enjoy this relish just with a spoon (That’s what we did with most of it.) Still, please reserve some of it for the recipe I am going to share next week.

Cheers for now and have a great weekend!

    I love a good relish, and I agree this one definitely deserves it’s own spot. I love that it looks so bejewelled and imagine myself smothering cheese in this.
