1. In a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan, add the brown sugar, water, Port and Mariani Dried Cranberries and bring to a boil.
2. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the liquid has reduced by half.
3. Add in the cranberries, fresh orange juice + zest and five-spice powder, stirring to coat, and simmer for 5 minutes more or until most of the cranberries are still plump and only a few may have popped.
4. Pour into a heat-safe bowl to cool completely. Store in the fridge in an air-tight container until ready to use.
*Light brown sugar can be substituted for the dark brown sugar.
*For a thicker, jam-like consistency cook for about 5 minutes more.
