Mulled Wine Cranberry Sauce

Serving Size: 6-8

This cranberry sauce gathers its flavor from red wine, orange zest, and the warm spices

of nutmeg and cinnamon. Plenty sweet and a bit tart, this sauce has a thicker texture,

like jam. Delicious as a side dish to turkey - it would also be great as an appetizer

(crostini with a smear of brie) or even as a dessert topping for vanilla ice cream.


1 cup sugar

1 cup red wine

12 oz (1 bag) fresh cranberries

3 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon fresh orange zest

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1. Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high


2. Continue to heat until the cranberries start to pop, roughly 5 minutes, stirring


3. Press the berries against the side of the pan to help break them down and continue

cooking for another 5-10 minutes until the sauce becomes jammy and slightly thickened.

4. Remove the cranberry sauce from the heat. Allow the sauce to cool and thicken for

about 30 minutes before enjoying.
