Cranberry Merlot Sauce
Not only are cranberries delicious, but they’re also a great source of antioxidants. Although you may be tempted to cut down on the sugar in this recipe, it’s a pretty tart sauce.
Makes 2 1/4 cups
1 cup red wine (port wine works great too)
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar (or a touch more to taste)
1 12-oz package fresh or frozen cranberries
1/4 cup orange juice or the zest and juice of 1 orange
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
In a medium saucepan combine all of the ingredients and bring to a simmer over medium high heat. Reduce heat slightly and simmer 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Cool and serve.
