Why I Love This Recipe

Food and Wine Nov. '94. It's my favorite Thanksgiving cranberry sauce!

Ingredients You'll Need

2T veg oil
1 large yellow onion, finely diced
5 med. garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 c. fresh or frozen cranberries (about a pound)
1/2 c. dried cranberries (about 2.5 oz.)
1/2 c. (packed) dark brown sugar
1 1/2 c. cranberry juice
1/4 c. (good) balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. port
1 1/2 t coarse salt
1 1/2 t coarsely cracked black pepper
1/2 t ground allspice
1 small cinnamon stick
1 nickel-sized slice of ginger
2 whole cloves


1. Heat oil in large non-reactive saucepan. Add onion, cook over mod. heat, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 7 min. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 2 min. Stir in all cranberries, brown sugar, cranberry juice, balsamic vinegar, port, salt, pepper and allspice.

2. Tie the cinnamon stick, ginger and cloves in a small piece of cheesecloth (I was out of cheesecloth, so I put the ginger and cloves in a teaball, and just added the cinnamon stick by itself, as it was easy to fish out later). Add it to the saucepan and bring to a boil over mod. high heat. Lower the heat nsd simmer gently until thickened, about 35 min. Discard the spice bundle and let cool.
