Mulled Wine Cranberry Sauce

Serves 6-8

This cranberry sauce gets flavor from red wine, orange zest, and the warm spices of nutmeg and cinnamon. Plenty sweet and a bit tart, this sauce has the thicker texture of a jam. Delicious as a side dish to turkey - it would also be great as an appetizer (crostini with a smear of brie) or even as a dessert (a topping for vanilla ice cream). 

1 cup sugar
1 cup red wine
12 oz (1 bag) fresh cranberries
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon fresh orange zest
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. 

2. Continue to heat until the cranberries start to pop, roughly 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Press the berries against the side of the pan to help break them down and continue cooking for another 5-10 minutes until the sauce becomes jammy. 

4. Remove the cranberry sauce from the heat and let it cool and thicken for about 30 minutes before enjoying.
