For hours we toil
Roasting; Slicing autumn's feast
With a prayer lets eat

Cranberry Relish – yields about 1 quart
3/4 -pound fresh cranberries
1 orange - zested
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup red wine
1/2 cup water
large pinch cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black

In a 3 cup sauce pan heat all the ingredients over a medium heat, and cook for 30 minutes covered. Stir the mixture every so often to prevent scorching. Serve warm to cold.
