Cranberry Sauce (download printable PDF)

Tames’ Cranberry Sauce

Note:  Use a good quality Port wine.  I  like  Croft Fine Tawny Porto.

Ingredients                                                                                         Utensils

3 packages of cranberries                                                                   Measuring cup

1 cup fresh orange juice                                                                      Sauce pan

2 ¼ cup sugar                                                                                       Spoon

2 cups port wine                                                                                   Serving dish

Sort through the cranberries and discard any bad ones.  Place the cranberries and the orange juice in a sauce pan.

Bring to a gentle boil, and reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes until the cranberries are soft.  Stir occasionally.

Stir in the sugar and port and cook gently until the sauce becomes pulpy—about 30-45 minutes or more depending on your stove.

Let cool to room temperature and pour into a mold or serving dish.  Refrigerate.
