With Thanksgiving coming I felt some holiday recipes would do -

Thank you to CanMan for this one:

Cranberry and Dried-Cherry Relish

1 12 oz package fresh cranberries
1 cup dried tart cherries -- about 5 oz.
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Place 1/2 the mixture in a food processor. Using on/off pulses, process until coarsely chopped. Transfer to medium bowl and repeat process with remaining ingredients. Chill at least 1 day and up to 2 days, stirring occasionally. If you like a stronger cardamom flavor you can add it just before serving.

Yield: 2 cups

and thank you to jglss for this one:

Apple and Spice Brine

This is a good flavored sweet brine that imparts the flavors of apple, spice and citrus to the turkey. Simmer pices in the orange and apple juices for 15 minutes. Boil the sugar and salt in the water until dissolved. Cool both, combine, and refrigerate overnight before adding turkey.

1 gallon ---water
3 quarts --- apple juice
3 quarts --- orange juice
1 1/2 cups ---salt
1 1/2 cups ----brown sugar
10 whole ----cloves
1 tsp ----nutmeg
