fresh cranberry relish

need a good source on Westside for fresh relish—whole berries, zingy citrus—for T'day.
I used to go to Whole Foods but it's getting harder to find there and last year's batch, bought the day before, tasted stale.
I only need a pint or so, so not looking for giant CostConian size.

      great idea, thx. toying w/ the cheap Trader Joe version, which I've never had. Decisions, decisions....

        I grew up with a mother who cooked everything from scratch, and made the perfect iconic American Thanksgiving feast. The fresh cranberry relish from TJ's is indistinguishable from what my mother made.

        Sure, I could make it myself, but why bother? The TJ's version is fine. Cranberries, oranges, and sugar - that's all. Just like it should be.

        (Be sure to get the one in the tub with the orange lid. The other one with the black lid is a cooked cranberry sauce - a good one, but not the same.)

    2. Doesn't answer your question, but as an fyi, it will take you less time to make than to driving to buy it (and especially for $16). Recipe is usually on back of cranberry bag and only takes 15 minutes or so to make

        The Larder at makes a delicious fresh cranberry relish. I had it last year and it was truly fantastic. I ordered double the amount this year. Also recommend the turkey gravy; none better.

          brilliant—kills 2 turkeys with one stone!

          I know but it's one thing (along with gravy) that I don't trust myself to do well, so would rather include in my Wednesday shopping wrangling.
