Absolutely addictive, Cranberries in Red Wine is the perfect side dish for your Turkey dinner. You’ll need Just 5 ingredients and mere minutes to put together this versatile and delicious dish.
I know that Thanksgiving traditions can not be changed easily. Most families have their favorite dishes that must be on the table or it’s not Thanksgiving. It’s not the time to try a bunch of new recipes or switch out a favorite dish for something new. But throwing in a new cranberry side dish shouldn’t upset the day too much. Of course you can still open a can of cranberry sauce and serve both.
There are so Many Ways to Use Cranberries in Red Wine….
I first made this dish over 30 years ago based on a recipe I saw in the now defunct Cuisine Magazine. What I love about this recipe is that I can use it so many ways beyond a dollop next to the turkey. It’s great spread on a “leftovers” sandwich, my husband loves to mix it into yogurt, I put it on scones with clotted cream. it makes a killer Cranberry Linzer Tart and it’s the perfect topping for White Chocolate Cheesecake.
Even better, it couldn’t be easier to make. Put everything in the pot, cook for about 10 minutes, cool and refrigerate. I like to use a light to medium bodied red wine such as Pinot Noir or Zinfandel. There’s no reason to use a very expensive wine for this recipe, but do use something good enough to drink.
Anyway, if you’re looking for a new recipe to slip into the mix on Thursday give this a try.
Happy Thanksgiving! The longer you cook the mixture the firmer the sauce will be when cooled.
