A Domestic Diva Talks Relish (Morning Edition, NPR)

Morning Edition, November 18, 2005 · It’s pink and lumpy. It’s an NPR Thanksgiving tradition. And this year it’s the subject of a conversation with one of the most famous entrepreneurs in the world.

Grind up some cranberries and onions, mix in a few more unanticipated ingredients, and freeze overnight. The next morning, you’ll have a dish full of the famous, albeit bubblegum-colored, Mama Stamberg’s Cranberry Relish.

NPR’s Susan Stamberg has been sharing her stepmother’s relish recipe with listeners since the network began broadcasting in 1971. This year, Stamberg takes the opportunity to talk with homemaker and businesswoman extraordinaire Martha Stewart.

Stewart is busy trying to rekindle her career after serving five months in prison for lying to federal investigators about a stock sale. But she found time to talk turkey… or relish, brussels sprouts and pumpkin gratin, to be exact.
