“This is the perfect thing to make and volunteer to bring to your family Thanksgiving gathering when you want to look like you made an effort! The maple syrup sweetens it perfectly and the walnuts make the texture so much more interesting.”

Directions

  1. Place cranberries into a large saucepan and stir in orange juice, maple syrup, sugar, port wine, ginger, orange zest, cinnamon stick, and salt.
  2. Bring sauce to a simmer. Berries will begin to pop. Cook at a simmer until berries are cooked through and soft, about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove saucepan from heat and let cranberry sauce cool for about 5 minutes.
  4. Shake walnuts in a dry skillet over medium heat, cooking until golden brown and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Wipe away any small particles of walnut skin from skillet to avoid bitterness. Stir walnuts into cranberry sauce. Let cool to room temperature and transfer to a serving bowl; sauce will thicken as it cools. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, pushing wrap to touch sauce and refrigerate until needed. Sauce can be made several days ahead.

This is not your typical cranberry sauce - it was easy to make and absolutely delicious. I brought the cranberry sauce to a Thanksgiving Dinner and everyone loved it; even someone who doesn't usually like cranberry sauce at all. I won't wait till Thanksgiving to make this again.
