Most cooks have done homemade cranberry sauce with the package directions off of the bag. Some of us have also added orange juice or other things like wine. This is a little different since I don’t use table sugar. It’s a deeper, richer flavor than standard cranberry sauce. I hope you like it.
12 ounce pack fresh cranberries
8 ounces water
4 ounces Merlot
1/2 cup molasses
4 ounces light brown sugar
1 pinch salt
1 cinnamon stick
1 finger fresh ginger, pealed
In a 2-quart sauce pan, add all ingredients and cook on medium high until all the berries pop.
Remove cinnamon stick and ginger.
