Yummy Spreadable Red Wine Cranberry Sauce Recipe
Serving Size / Yield
- 1 C. sugar
- 2/3 C. red wine (I like Shiraz)
- 1/4 C. water
- 1/4 tsp. crystallized ginger, minced
- 1 lemon juice with zest
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 vanilla bean- pulp required, pod optional.
- 12 oz. cranberries- That's one bag; fresh or frozen.
Combine sugar, wine, water, ginger, lemon juice, zest, salt and vanilla (pod & pulp) in a medium saucepan. Stir occasionally on medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Add cranberries and bring to a simmer (still on medium). Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer gently for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the vanilla pod and buzz with a stick blender (or whatever blender you've got) just enough to pop all the berries. Put the vanilla pod back in the jar (if you like), lid and and cool to room temperature before storing in the fridge.
