Delicious Five-Spice Port Cranberry Sauce with Mariani Dried Cranberries | Recipe and photography by Rebecca Firth, Displaced Housewife

  • People: 6-8
  • Prep/Cook Time: 3-40 min

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Ruby Port wine
  • 3/4 cup Mariani Dried Cranberries
  • 12 ounces fresh or frozen cranberries 
  • 1 orange or tangerine, juice and zest
  • fresh torn herbs like parsley and/or lemon slices
  • 1 orange or tangerine, juice and zest

Instructions

  • 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.
  • TIPS
  • *Light brown sugar can be substituted for the dark brown sugar.
  • *For a thicker, jam-like consistency cook for about 5 minutes more.
