During the holidays it is popular to have a side dish of cranberries. Not everyone one is fond of the little red berries and finding a recipe that will please everyone's palate can be a tough task. Many years ago my mother ran across a recipe that sounded liked it would be welcomed by all at the dinner table come holiday time. The one big change she made was to substitute a good red wine for the water that was in the recipe. Here is a cranberry recipe that will be liked by those who are the pickiest of eaters. This cranberry recipe is easy and doesn't require much time in the kitchen.
Before you get started the recipe calls for Cabernet Sauvignon but any red wine will do when making this. Make sure it is something you like to drink. If you do not like drinking it there is no use in cooking with it.
