Thanksgiving Dinner: Side Dishes

Our side dishes were pretty simple. We had swirled mashed Yukon Gold and mashed sweet potatoes (kudos to my s-i-l Laurie for the fancy food styling), brussels sprouts with bacon, cranberry-apple relish, and white cheddar-chive biscuits. The relish is a new recipe that I made up; it was a nice accompaniment for the pork. Enjoy!

Cranberry-Apple Relish
1 bag cranberries
3/4 cup sugar
2 Granny Smith apples, chopped
1 tsp. cinnamon
Orange juice

1. Combine cranberries and next 3 ingredients in a saucepan. Pour in orange juice to cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid reduces and mixture thickens slightly.
