 Categories: Relishes, Holiday, Usenet
      Yield: 8 Servings
      2 c  Marshmallow creme
      1 c  Heavy whipping cream
      3 oz Cream cheese

     10 oz Cranberries, fresh
    3/4 c  Water
      6 oz Raspberry Jello mix
           -(1 package)
    1/4 c  Sugar, granulated
      1 c  Celery, chopped fine
      1 c  Tokay grapes
           -(quartered and seeded)
  2 1/2 c  Pineapple (canned),
           -crushed, including
           -syrup (one #2 can)
  MAKE DRESSING:  The night before serving the relish, place the cream
  cheese and marshmallow creme in a small bowl.  Mash lightly with a
  fork to barely break up cream cheese.  Add whipping cream and cover
  tightly.  Refrigerate overnight.
  15 minutes before serving, whip mixture with an electric mixer until
  it reaches the consistency of thick, but not stiff, whipped cream.
  MAKE RELISH:  Rinse cranberries thoroughly.  Place in an 8-cup
  saucepan with water and cover. Bring to a boil and cook until the
  berries have "popped." Remove from heat and, using an electric mixer,
  beat gently until all the berries are broken. Add Jello and sugar.
  Place saucepan over a bowl of ice and stir occasionally until mixture
  has thickened but not jelled.

  of a fresh cranberry relish she insisted serving at Thanksgiving and
  Christmas. The unanimous family response to the inevitably bitter
  dish was, "Do we have to?" Then one year a friend came to
  Thanksgiving dinner and contributed what is now known simply as "the
  recipe." Mom never tried to improve on this addictive relish. Yield:
  Serves 8-10.
  *  The most difficult step is in unmolding the relish.  I always
  spray my mold very lightly with a coating of an aerosol cooking oil
  (such as "PAM") before filling it with the relish. When it's time to
  unmold, I run a thin spatula around the outside of the molded relish
  to barely loosen it, place the serving plate on top and invert the
  mold and plate. I rarely have to dip the mold in hot water to loosen
  the relish.
  *  I usually use a standard ring mold and put the dressing in a footed
  compote which sits in the center of the unmolded ring of relish.
