Cranberry Sauce with Dried Cherries

Cranberry Sauce with Dried Cherries
Dried cherries and fresh cranberries pair beautifully. Cloves are a festive touch.


  • 1.5 cups cherry cider or black cherry cider or cranberry juice cocktail

  • ¾ cup Port

  • 1 stick Cinnamon

  • 1 package 8-ounce dried tart cherries (about 2 cups)

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 package 12-ounce cranberries

  • ¼ teaspoon (generous) ground cloves

Bring cider and port to simmer in heavy, large saucepan with cinnamon stick. Remove from heat. Add cherries and let stand 8 minutes. Mix in sugar, then cranberries and cloves. Cook over medium-high heat until cranberries burst, stirring occasionally, about 9 minutes. Refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours (sauce will thicken as it cools). (Can be prepared 4 days ahead. Cover and keep refrigerated.)

(Serves --)

Used Bon Appetite recipe for base. Added port wine, Cherry Cider cinnamon
