Favorite Things-- Cranberry Relish

It's almost Thanksgiving and I want to share
one of my all time favorite things with you.
When you read the ingredients,
they sound very unimpressive,
and a little strange,
but I promise it's wonderful.
And easy.

Evelyn's Cranberry Relish
(named this because my friend Evelyn gave
me this recipe years ago.)

Mix the following:
1/4 c Raven's Spice (mulling spices)
1 16-oz can whole berry cranberry sauce
1 20-oz can unsweetened crushed pineapple
1/2 c chopped pecans

The wild card here is the mulling spices.
I love this stuff so much I buy it wholesale by the case.
Of course, I also sell it during the Holiday Show & Sale,
and use it in the hot and cold apple cider we serve.

Drain excess juice if necessary. 
Heat in the microwave 5-8 minutes on high or
simmer in a saucepan or crock pot to thicken.
Could it be any simpler?

The beauty of this relish is what you can do with it.
Of course, it makes a great side for poultry or pork.
But, you can also use it over biscuits, pancakes or pound cake.
I LOVE it over ice cream.
And, when you're making turkey sandwiches
after Thanksgiving, put some on too.

I am copying this down to use for a variation on the cranberry sauce that noone here seems to eat. Got any idea what is in the mulling spices? xo Diana
