Maybe I’ve already written some of these, but repetition is a daily occurrence on TV, so what’s good enough for TV is good enough for me!

Cranberry relish

You will need one pound of raw cranberries, 3 oranges, 1 cup chopped walnuts and 1 cup sugar.

Wash the berries and oranges, and cut the oranges into sections. Remove the seeds and membranes.

Grind the berries and oranges — rinds, too — in a food processor or grinder. Add chopped nuts and sugar. Store in refrigerator or freezer.

This relish is good with turkey.

Gingerbread cookies

You will need 2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour, 1 1/2 tsp. of ground ginger, 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. ground all spice, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 cup softened butter or Oleo, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1 large egg, 1/2 cup light molasses and 1 tablespoon cider vinegar.

Sift together flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, all spice and salt.

Beat butter and brown sugar in large bowl of electric mixer until well blended. Beat in egg, molasses and vinegar.

Using the mixing on low speed, beat in the flour mixture. Divide the dough into four portions. Cover and chill at least two hours or until firm enough to handle.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease baking sheets. On a lightly floured board, roll 1 portion of dough at a time to 1/2-inch thickness. Keep the remaining dough in the refrigerator. Dip cookie cutter in flour and cut cookies. Place one inch apart on the baking sheet.

Bake 7-9 minutes, until the edges feel firm. Cool on wire racks. Store in airtight container. You can decorate the cookies with icing if you desire.

I’m not sure where this recipe came from; it’s not mine! But it is good.
