Cranberry sauce gets a bad rap around the holidays, usually due to the overuse of canned, gelatinous versions that seem to defy the laws of gravity.
But San Antonio chef Tim McDiarmid says it's easy to DIY a fresh and flavorful cranberry relish that will sweeten up your holiday spread — and maybe even make believers out of those left bitter by the canned cranberry experience.
McDiarmid shared her personal recipe for the underrated holiday staple, which requires no actual cooking and can be made ahead of time.
