  1. Over medium-high heat, sauté onions, garlic, ginger and chile until caramelized.
  2. Deglaze pan with wine. Add cranberries and 1/4 cup of water, and cook until about three fourths of the liquid is absorbed.
  3. Transfer to a processor while warm, so that chocolate will melt. Blend with rest of ingredients, including remaining 3 tablespoons of water, until smooth. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve over meat, tofu, or vegetables.
