20 fresh cranberry recipes your holiday needs RIGHT NOW!

One year, our family purchased a catered Thanksgiving meal package that came with a homemade cranberry orange relish that has gained total infamy in our family lore.

That recipe was DIVINE and completely changed my opinion of the traditional Thanksgiving side dish forever after.

I have spent the last 20 years trying to duplicate that cranberry relish magic. I've come close and I'll share the recipe soon but in the meantime wanted to round up some of the very best fresh cranberry recipes just in time for the holiday season.

If you think you don't like those gorgeous little tart fruits, you should give this list a chance.

Pairing cranberries with vanilla, orange, lemon, or a variety of liqueurs can completely transform the experience. I can almost guarantee something from this list will be a match made in heaven!

Did I miss your favorite?? Leave me a note in the comments, I'd love to add it to the list.
