Cranberries with Port
MAKES ABOUT 3 CUPS
This delicious cranberry sauce turns out to be one of the simplest—something you won't have to think twice about while preparing a big holiday meal. For added convenience, make it ahead of time and refrigerate until a few hours before serving.
1 cup ruby port
1 cup sugar
1 12-oz. bag fresh cranberries
1. In a medium nonstick saucepan, combine port, sugar, and cranberries. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Lower heat and cook until liquid reaches a syrupy consistency, about 20 minutes.
2. Remove from heat, pour into a serving dish, and cool to room temperature before serving. For a smoother texture, press sauce through a strainer, pour into a serving dish, and refrigerate before serving.
