Uncle Bob's Cranberry Relish

In honor of my Uncle Bob who passed a couple of years back, I give you Uncle Bob's Cranberry Relish:

12 oz package fresh cranberries (I use frozen that I thawed)
one 6-oz tangerine, quartered and seeded
3/4 c sugar
1/2 c coarsely chopped crystallized ginger (~2.5oz)
1/2 c orange marmalade

Put cranberries and tangerine into blender and coarsely chop. Do not peal the tangerine* but make sure it has no seeds. Mix in the remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

*Ben's note: I use only half of the rind of the tangerine as it can be a bit overwhelming.

Uncle Bob was a foodie and a great amateur chef. Every Thanksgiving he would fry a turkey and make some of the best side dishes. Cranberry Relish was my favorite dish that he made.
