I was thinking about Thanksgiving coming up next week (another year has flown by) and wanted to give you an herbal twist on one of my favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. I have kept some of my mother's newspaper clips and recipes from boxes of food.

This recipe is obviously from an Ocean Spray cranberry box from years ago. The orange jello is an afterthought of my mother's (I think), not in the original recipe. When I visited there was a cranberry-orange relish recipe, but nothing like this one. I love this recipe because it is quick, easy, and you can make it ahead of time.

The herbal twist is that I steep rosemary in the water before you start the recipe. Besides the addition of the orange jello, the rosemary adds another layer of flavor to the dish. Rosemary for me is always associated with the holidays and is the perfect addition to this recipe because it goes very well with cranberries and orange.

Here is a picture of the finished relish and my version of the recipe with the original proportions in italics.
