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.
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.)
