Cranberry Sauce with Cabernet

2c cabernet, or other dry red wine you like
1c sugar
1c brown sugar
1/2c apple juice
6-12 cloves, depending on your taste
2 cinnamon sticks
1t ginger
1 orange, sliced
1lb fresh cranberries

Combine all ingredients EXCEPT the cranberries and simmer until reduced to about 2c liquid. For me this takes about 15 min. Beware the mess on your stove. Strain the liquid and discard the cloves, cinnamon, and orange slices. Return the liquid to the pot and add the cranberries. Stir until they all pop. From here you can keep stirring, but I mash it up with a potato masher. Enjoy!

Yummmm! I've been wanting to try real cranberry sauce - hate the gel from a can crud. This sounds perfect!

An excellent recipe! This will be good for ham and pork roast as well as the traditional turkey dinner. Thanks for sharing.

I posted a Cranberry Salad recipe on my blog today. Similar flavors, different approach.
