Fresh Cranberry-Pomegranate Sauce Recipe

RSS
I started making Thanksgiving dishes in 2007 and fresh cranberry sauce was first on the list.  My future mother-in-law was coming to meet my parents for the first time and I found out that cranberry sauce is one of her Thanksgiving faves.  I wanted to make her feel welcome (and maybe impress her a little) so I gave it a try.  So glad that I did. Once you make fresh cranberry sauce, you'll never want to buy the canned stuff again.  

That first year, I kept it really simple, but in the years that followed, I experimented with different flavors and combinations until I finally found "The One."  Here it is...

Fresh Cranberry Pomegranate Sauce

SUGGESTED PAIRING:  Try making this while you're wearing the Apronini in Margot and your little one is decked out in the Burpa Bib in Chic Chevron Hot Pink or Brightest Blue.

SERVINGS:   8-12

PREP TIME:  10 mins 

COOK TIME: 10 mins

INGREDIENTS (SCROLL DOWN FOR TODDLER-FRIENDLY VERSION)

1 (12-ounce) bag fresh cranberries, rinsed and sorted

1 cup Turbinado sugar

1/2 cup orange juice (fresh-squeezed or no sugar added)

1/2 cup Cabernet Sauvignon wine

DIRECTIONS

1. Combine cranberries, sugar, orange juice and wine in a medium sauce pot and bring to a boil.



2. Lower heat to medium and simmer for about 10 minutes. You'll hear popping sounds during this time, which is totally normal and fun for little ones to hear.

3. Remove from heat.  Use the back of a spoon to pop any berries that haven't burst.



4.  Let cool for about 5 minutes and then stir in pomegranate seeds.  Mix well.

 5. Refrigerate in an airtight container for at least 8 hours or overnight (preferred).
