What’s Cooking?
Ingredients: 1 package fresh cranberries 1 cup water, or 3/4 cup water, 1/4 cup red wine (optional) 1 cup sugar finely minced zest from 1/2 orange 1/8t. salt - it brings out the flavor! 1/4 c. chopped pecans or walnuts, preferably lightly roasted (also optional)
Directions Place sugar, salt and liquid in saucepan, bring to slow boil until sugar is dissolved. Place berries and zest in pan. Cook over slow heat for about ten minutes, until cranberries pop. Remove from heat; stir in nuts and let cool. Note: the left-over sauce makes a delicious dip: One package cream cheese 1/2 cup sour cream Cranberry sauce to desired taste 1/4t. hot pepper (or more to taste) Serve with crackers – very festive, and great with wine! I've used this recipe with a can of Mandarin oranges. I used the juice with water to equal one cup and cut the sugar just a bit. After the cranberries pop, I added chopped orange pieces, and let it cool.
