Recipe from Better Homes and Gardens
24 ounces fresh cranberries (6 cups)
1 cup full-bodied red wine or cranberry juice
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
Wash cranberries; drain. Remove any spoiled berries. In a wide nonreactive skillet combine wine, sugar, 1/4 tsp. salt, and cinnamon stick. Bring to simmer, stirring to dissolve sugar; cook one minute. Add the cranberries; cook, stirring constantly, until they begin to pop, 3 to 5 minutes. Add orange zest; cook a few seconds longer. Remove from heat. Cool. Remove cinnamon stick. For thicker relish, smash berries slightly with back of spoon. Makes 16 to 20 (1/4-cup) servings.
Relish can be made up to 1 week in advance. Store, covered, in refrigerator.
