  1. In a large saucepan, combine the cranberries, brown sugar, orange zest and juice, and port wine. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer until the cranberries have popped and the sauce has thickened, about 15 minutes. Cool, and refrigerate overnight before serving.

I made this as a Thanksgiving appetizer and served it over a round of brie warmed in the oven for about 20 mins. It was excellent. The leftover sauce was fabulous with our turkey and great on ...

This was so good; I've never made cranberry sauce from scratch before... but it was so easy. I will never eat cranberry sauce out of a can again. The sauce only took about 10 minutes to thicken ...

The flavor is very good. It's just a little on the tart side for me, though. I added a dash of vanilla but otherwise kept the recipe the same. I used ruby port but wonder how the tawny would ...

This was great. I didn't think the difference between white and dk brown sugar would be that big, but that maple-y flavor of the dk brown sugar, the orange and wine make these cranberries delish!

I'm giving this version 4 stars. It is good but to make it better use a tawny port bringing out the flavor of the brown sugar more and give it caramel notes. I like Cockburns' 20 Year Tawny Po...
