This tart cranberry sauce far outshines anything that comes in a can and it only takes a few minutes to prepare. Red wine and grapes help balance the tartness of the cranberries and orange jest offers a bright, citrusy note.


Select ingredients:


  1. Place the cranberries and grapes in a medium-sized pot on a stovetop heated to medium. Let fruit cook for about five minutes or until cranberries start to soften.
  2. Then add in the wine, salt, orange juice and sugar and bring to a boil for two minutes or until the cranberries begin to burst. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, or until the liquid has been reduced and the mixture resembles a thick sauce.
  3. Add orange zest, reserving some for garnish, stir, and remove from heat. Transfer to a serving dish, top with additional zest, and serve immediately or keep in fridge overnight.
