I don't usually have a problem finishing up Thanksgiving leftovers. The exception is cranberry relish, which usually ends up in the trash after a couple of weeks. So. How can I repurpose all that cranberry sauce?

I very recently saw a recipe that used cranberry sauce in muffins. I will search and get back to you.

http://www.seriousea...ce_muffins.html is one recipe (not the one I saw, but it looks good).

http://www.joyofbaki...ownMuffins.html is a recipe for upside down muffins. The recipe for cranberry sauce uses less sugar than a regular cranberry sauce recipe, but I think whatever you have would work fine, too.

Ah, very good! This sauce is a little spicy, which might make an interesting muffin.

A lady on the radio just suggested flatbread pizza with cranberry sauce and goat cheese. That'd go well with turkey soup, round about Sunday night.

I once made some outrageously delicious grilled cheese sandwiches with gorgonzola dolce and leftover cranberry sauce.

You can always call it jam and spread it on toast. It's great with cream cheese.

lippy, does your cranberry relish freeze well?

I've never frozen it, so I don't know. I guess it could be frozen, but I suspect that much of the bright freshness would be lost and that is its charm, I think.

Over ice cream? One of my favorite brands of ice cream sauces is Toad Sweat -- all sweet and spicy, like chocolate-orange-chipotle, iirc.

Whenever I make chicken salad or tuna salad sandwiches, I mix in some cranberry sauce. I like the sweet and tangy touch it gives them.

I ditto grilled cheese with cranberry sauce! Also that baked camembert or brie wrapped in phyllo or puff pastry is really great with a layer of cranberry sauce in lieu of hot pepper jelly.

I always freeze mine. In fact, I have a batch leftover from Thanksgiving in the freezer right now. Then, whenever I have chicken or anything else that requires cranberry sauce, I have some.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Any kind of sweet relish or chutney is great with a sharp cheese like an an aged cheddar for a grilled cheese sandwich. When melted with the turkey makes a fantastic panini, actually.
