When I was a kid, I always preferred the smooth, canned cranberry sauce. My mom often made a homemade cranberry relish gelatin, but it wasn’t until I was a bit older that I really began to appreciate it. She always included nuts and thinly sliced celery and it had the most wonderful crunch.
Several years ago my sister put together a cookbook of the recipes that my grandmother, my mom and her sisters made frequently. It’s such a treasure! I was browsing through recently and spotted the “Cranberry Jello” recipe.

Ahhh, I thought. I could do something similar, but ferment it so that it would be packed with probiotics. Yes, lacto-fermented cranberry relish sounded perfect!
This would also make a nice hostess gift during the holidays, packed in an attractive jar. And it’s a good introduction to lacto-fermentation for the un-initiated because people already expect something with cranberries to be tart.
Hope you enjoy!
