A delicious holiday (or not) whole berry sauce that is so simple (if you don't sneak a sip of the liquid while you are acquiring the ingredients) that you'll be amazed.
- 1 lb cranberries
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup cognac or 1 cup brandy
- 1 tablespoon orange zest
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Combine first 3 ingredients (in saucepan large enough to hold ingredients and more).
- Cook over low heat until most of berries have "popped".
- Add zest and cinnamon.
- Remove from heat.
- Cool and store in refrigerator or freeze until wanted.
Whoa!! A little too much booze for me! Still good, but an acquired taste, methinks. I usually make my cranberry sauce with juice (different kinds) and lemon peel or orange peel and I am not a drinker so take this review for what it is and decide for yourself.
