1 bag cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp brandy
1 cup cabernet or other red wine
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Allspice
a pinch of nectarine or orange zest
Put in sauce pan, bring to a boil & then simmer on low until berries pop & sauce mixes together. Put in refrigerator to chill, then serve when needed. Can double or triple the batch for a large gathering. Great to make ahead also.
Another version is instead of brandy & 1 cup of red wine, instead use 3/4 cup red wine & 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. orange juice. Both versions are delicious & beat store brands any day!
