Cranberry SauceSubmitted by: SUCCUBUS
1 cup red wine
1 cup granulated sugar
1 12-oz bag fresh whole cranberries
1 3"-6" length orange peel
1 3" stick cinnamon
9 whole cloves
1 star anise (optional)
Lemon juice to taste
Combine wine & sugar in medium saucepan over medium heat to dissolve sugar. Add cranberries, orange peel, and spices, and simmer on medium high for 10 minutes. When cranberries start to burst (you will hear popping) you can crush them against the sides of the pot to make a thicker, less chunky sauce.
When sauce reaches desired consistency and cranberries have burst, taste, and add lemon juice.
Remove from heat and chill. Remove orange peel & whole spices before serving.
Number of Servings: 8
