The two dishes in the foreground are Joel's great-grandma's (Mamo's) raw cranberry sauce (on the left), and my family's traditional cranberry salsa (on the right). I love both of these for different reasons. The Mamo cranberry sauce is made from apples, cranberries, a whole orange, and some sugar. You just blend it up and voila, cranberry sauce. And the cranberry salsa provides just the piquant kick that the Thanksgiving plate needs, that palate cleansing wake-up when things get a little slow.
