Port Cranberry Sauce

24 Dec

At Thanksgiving I experimented with two different types of cranberry sauces. This one was a hit and the other one was a dud. I am making this scrumptious sauce for Christmas and wanted to share this easy recipe. This sauce can be put in the freezer, just thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.

  • zest from an orange
  • juice from an orange
  • add enough port to the orange juice tom measure 1 cup
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 12 oz bag of cranberries

Place the orange zest,  the juice, port and the sugar into a medium sauce pan. Bring to boil over medium high heat and cook until sugar is dissolved. Pour the cranberries into the sauce. Cook, stirring until cranberries begin to burst. Simmer, stirring until liquid is reduced, about 8 minutes. Turn off heat, cool before covering and freezing.
