|alryssa||04:02 pm - Cranberry-cherry sauce for Thanksgiving (or anytime, really)|
This sauce is delicious, made sweeter by the addition of cherries. It's simple, and tastes way better than the stuff you buy in a can.
- 2 1/2 cups cranberry juice
- 1 cup golden brown sugar, packed
- 1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
- 1/4 tsp ground allspice
- 1 6oz package dried cherries
- 1 12oz bag cranberries
Bring the juice to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in the sugar until it dissolves. Add cherries and cook for about two minutes, then add the allspice, cinnamon stick and cranberries and cook until all the berries have popped (you can help them along with the back of a wooden spoon).
Serve cold or at room temperature, remembering to remove the cinnamon stick before doing so :)
Current Mood: calm
Fresh cranberries, right? (I'm assuming, since you specifically mention dried cherries...but I don't want to assume too far.) :)
