Port Wine Cranberries

Author Notes: This recipe has become a favorite at our Thanksgiving Dinner. For many years I would try new ways of creating a new cranberry sauce, but in the end I felt that the port wine added that extra taste I was searching for. eleonore

Serves: 10-12

  • 2 bags (12 oz. each) cranberries, washed and picked over
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, and chopped
  • 1-1/3 cups Port Wine
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 pinch Kosher Salt
  • 2/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Put above ingredients in a 4-5 quart saucepan and bring to a boil (make sure to stir).
  2. Lower heat and continue cooking uncovered until most of the cranberries have popped - stirring occasionally. This may take about 8 minutes or so.
  3. Transfer sauce into serving dish and cover with saran wrap and then refrigerate until completely chilled. Sauce will thicken during this time.
  4. I make this sauce the day before to allow for sufficient time to chill and save time on Turkey Day. I like to use a light dish (white/off white) to show off the cranberries.
