Cranberries don’t have to be complicated, but they don’t have to come out of a can either. Instead of simmering plump, tart New England berries, pulse them in a food processor with sugar and spices for a simple relish with a lot of zip. Make it a day or two in advance so you get at least one dish out of the way.
