Red Wine Maple Cranberry Sauce
A true cranberry sauce can be enjoyed in many different ways. Yes, as a condiment to roasted meats – turkey, chicken, pork, but also as a spread on sandwiches, mixed with barbecue sauce for slow-cooked meats, or baked into scones. Just search Pinterest for uses of cranberry sauce! You’ll be amazed.
12 oz (approx 3 cups) cranberries, try some VT cranberries
1/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/3 cup dry red wine, plus a glass for yourself
1/2 cup maple syrup, grade B
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 tsp fresh ground ginger
1 cinnamon stick (approx 4 inches)
Rinse and remove any stems on cranberries.
Pour yourself a glass of wine.
Place all the ingredients in a pot over medium-high heat.
Once the berries start to pop, begin stirring. The sauce will thicken after about 10 mins. Continue heating until the desired consistency is reached. Keep in mind that it will thicken a bit after it cools. Serve warm or at room temperature.
