Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: Serves 6-8 a generous dollop

Ingredients

  • 12 ounce bag fresh cranberries
  • 4-5 oranges, juice AND zest
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 1 cup port wine
  • 1 cup sugar

How to Do It:

  1. Put cranberries in saucepan away from heat.
  2. Add port wine, and put over a medium high flame. Let these cook while you prepare the add-ins.
  3. Using a zester, remove zest (peel) from your oranges, and set aside for now.
  4. Halve the oranges, and juice.
  5. Meantime, back at the stove. Add sugar, and stir.
  6. Add the fresh-squeezed orange juice.
  7. Remove needles from rosemary, and chop incredibly fine--to prevent a woody, mouth feel. Reserve a sprig or two to garnish.
  8. Add orange zest to simmering cranberries, reserving a few shreds for garnish.
  9. Add pulverized rosemary, and simmer a few minutes more--or less--depending on desired consistency. Remember, the cranberry will become gelatinous upon cooling.
  10. Just add a turkey dinner, and you are in like Flynn. :)

Just add a turkey dinner, and you are good to go!

      Hi Chitrangada!

      I was going to do the dressing recipe, but I wanted to get something up here in a timely fashion--for the recent holiday--and this one was pretty easy! To HUB or to cook...:)

      I think of these pages like a lil cyber resume for my cheffing side job. They are perfect for that, and hence my attention to detail. Thank you for noticing. :)

      Have a great weekend!

      Hey-lo, Krafty Kid...I was just poppin' in to reset my lil picture reel--and wanted to wish you the best Thanksgiving ever!

      You will love this sauce--the zest brightens it up, picking up the tartness of the berries, and the port...well...the port. Never a bad thing. Adds dimension and keeps the cook happy...;)

      Thank you for your awesomely kind words, KK. :)

      You are as talented with words as with utensils :-)

      I never thought of adding orange juice, orange zest and .... port wine! For Christmas, I will keep that one in mind for sure! It will be more flavourful that way!

      Thank you for sharing, CharronsChatter.... and have a great Thanksgiving! Knowing your talent in the kitchen, your family will be happy to be at your table!
