Directions

  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 our sandwiches the next day. Extremely easy to make, and very good.

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 for me. I reserved about 1/2 cup of the cranberries and soaked them in hot sugar water. I put them in the sauce after it was done. The red of the whole berries really popped against the dark color of the sauce. Delicious.

This is a delicious sauce. The orange and port really bring out the fruitiness of the cranberry flavor, and the amount of sugar is just right for a tart/sweet balance. I've tried it with both brown and white sugar -- with white sugar it is a little lighter, and you want about a tablespoon less of port (half a cup instead of 9 tablespoons). It's tasty both ways, but a brighter color if you use white sugar and ruby port.
