READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by chia2160

I love port after dinner, and I love to cook dried fruit with it. This recipe is perfect with the dried berries and the combo of dried and fresh is delicious. in this photo i used dried cherries and golden raisins instead of the dried cranberries, very colorful and tasty.

I have been using this recipe every Thanksgiving since it first appeared in Bon Appetite a few years ago. I love it and normally I hate cranberry sauce. It's a definite crowd pleaser! *sorry got the magazine wrong!*
