For many more years now than we can count on, this Friday before Thanksgiving NPR, a special correspondent, Susan Stamberg, introduced the unconventional recipe for her cranberry bag – this is grass, tested times, great for some tasters and terrible for others.
The recipe is controversial – especially if you like only a sweet grinder sauce. Mom Stamberg has a common cranberry and sugar, but then attach it with a black onion, sour cream and – wait for it – horseradish.
This year, the NPR asked listeners for their stories from Cranberries Relish Mama Stamberg. Many answers were poured from all over the country.
In Vauvatos, Vis., Laura Hopper says she is good at more than a turkey. "Do you need a little zip for a sandwich with a ham?" it says. "Is it bored with a flesh-hand?" Stamberg's mother saved her! "
Then there were neraszeri, like Vicki Ross-Rhoades in the northern Minnesota. She wrote that "even my brother Dusty, who mostly eats anything, did not like it".
And, of course, there are always receptors for teenagers – although there are few who come to David Timothy himself in Salt Lake City, Utah. He told us that the recipe was made several times, but with a few "replacements": black beans instead of cranberries, chill the power instead of sour cream and sugar – "instead of horses I use a hamburger," says Timothy. Did he keep anything from the original recipe? "Yes," says Timothy, "I still use the bow."
If you I want that original recipe to go, here it is.
Mummy Stambergood cranberries
2 cups of whole cranberry, washed
1 small onion
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup of sugar
2 spoons of rhine from the bowl ("red is a little smoother than white")
Pour crude berries and onions together. ("I'm using an old-fashioned meat grinder," says Stamberg. "I'm sure it has settings on a food processor that will give you rough grinding – not mashed").
Add everything else and mix.
Place the plastic container and freeze.
Morning in the morning, transfer it from the freezer into the refrigerator compartment to dissolve. ("It should still be a little soft peanut")
The mixture will be thick, creamy and shocking pink. ("OK, Pepto Bismol is pink, has a tangent taste that cuts and extracts turkey and sauce, and is also good on sandwiches with the next days in Turkey and roast beef.")

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
From year to year there are some ways you know how to thank you. The election time was more or less passed. Medium football ends. Football College closes in the season. You're debating people about whether Christmas decorations are too early. And since it has almost five decades, NPR Special correspondent Susan Stamberg reminds us of one of the many reasons why it is special – because she divides an unconventional prescription for her mother-in-law, Mama Stamberg, each year.
SUSAN STAMBERG, BILINA: This year we did an NPR call, asked a listener for their cousin stories Mama Stamberg. A lot of answers from all over the country, which we thank many people for. Now, the recipe is controversial, especially if you like only a sweet grinder sauce. Mom Stamberg has a common cranberry and sugar. But then push it with a black onion, sour cream and, wait, the horseradish. I did not count the days compared to her. I'm bad in mathematics and I was scared of the answer. But here are some comments for listeners.
JOAN GOUDAKONS: I like to do something that is unusual.
STAMBERG: In Evanston, Ill., Joan Goudakons (ph) took the opportunity.
GOUDAKONS: When I decided to try Nina's recipe, I wanted …
NINA TOTENBERG, BULLETIN: My recipe?
STAMBERG: NPR Nina Totenberg.
TOTENBERG: A terrible recipe like my recipe? You're out of your stupid mind (laughter).
STAMBERG: Well, Grace Schoettler (Ph) in Colorado Springs likes the recipe. She wrote last year when she ran away from the scent and still had more turkeys, she was so disappointed that she almost kicked out the rest of the party. In Vauvatos, Vis., Laura Hopper says she is better than Turkey. You need a bit of a sandwich with a ham, she writes. Bored with meat? Mama Stamberg saved her. And there are lollies, great fried pancakes of potatoes that the Jews eat for Hanukkah. Jessica Lichtenfeld (ph) in Raleigh, N.C., loves a combination, but has some tips.
JESSICA LICHTENFELD: Do not collect on the cream. Do not use light. Do not use Greek yogurt to make yourself feel better. Excellent from love is everything you need. So, little sour cream will not hurt you.
STAMBERG: The recipe went international this year, sort of. Andrea Haroldson (ph) did this 30 years ago when she lived in Massachusetts, but has since moved to Iceland.
ANDREA HAROLDSON: Well, there are no cranberries here, and there is no renaissance here. Until recently, there was no sour cream here. And surely there are no rats here. Sometimes I've seen – maybe in the last five years, like, for example, the thin spray of Ocean Sprai, but nobody knows what to do with cranberries here. It's so hopeless.
STAMBERG: Damn. When you get all the ingredients mixed – the recipe is on eg.org, by the way – put it in the freezer. In Iceland, all you have to do is leave it. Now we arrive at the converters, people who have heard me for a long time a nice shocking pink – OK, the color Pepto-Bismol, which for some reason turned them off. Meet Andy Miller (ph) at Manhattan Beach, California.
ANDI MILDER: Well, I heard you talk about this recipe over and over again. And finally I drive 405, I yelled in my car, you won, Susan Stamberg; I'll make your cranberries.
STAMBERG: Since then, he has created. Now to be fair, there were some vague. Vicki Ross-Rhoades in Northern Minnesota thought it was deliciously terrible. She wrote, even my brother Dusty, who mostly eats anything, did not like it. Pam Devour (ph) in Atlanta wrote that her family liked macaroni and cheese better. Kathy Zeidlik (Ph) in Columbia, MD, says she has an excellent cranberry recipe if she is interested in us. Also, Nina Totenberg.
TOTENBERG: I get you cranberries. I put a cup of water and some orange and sugar juices. And then cross the orange pieces. Then I put it in the fridge, and it's really pretty good and very simple.
STAMBERG: Well, without renaissance, she could not beat mine. Thank you very much.
STAMBERG: OK, big final. David Timothy in Salt Lake City, Utah.
DAVID TIMOTHI: Well, I just have to say that I made this recipe several times, but with the following replacements.
STAMBERG: Did you make a substitute in the holy recipe of my mother-in-law?
TIMOTHI: I'm sorry to say that. But yes, that's the way I succeeded. I use black beans instead of cranberries.
STAMBERG: Wait, are you putting black beans instead of cranberries?
TIMOTHY: Yes. Instead of cream and sugar, I use powder chilli. Instead of horses, I use a hamburger.
STAMBERG: (Laughter) Do you have anything to keep from the original recipe?
TIMOTHY: Yes, I still use the bow.
STAMBERG: I like Chilli, but on Thanksgiving?
TIMOTHI: Well, you know, Thanksgiving comes only once a year. You can eat chili at all times.
STAMBERG: Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I'd hold the beans if I were on you. Susan Stamberg, NPR news, Washington.
