Here’s a new cranberry sauce recipe to try for your holiday dinner: Sherry Triple Berry Cranberry Sauce
This cranberry sauce recipe has three types of berries in it: blueberries, raspberries and cranberries. The mix of all three of them simmered down into a beautiful sauce was the most delicious idea ever. Three sweet- tart tastes all in one. The flavor of the sauce has been enhanced by the addition of sherry cooking wine. You won’t find an overwhelmingly strong sherry flavor in this cranberry sauce- it just gives the sauce a flavor boost.
This homemade cranberry sauce recipe takes all of about 15 minutes total to make. The berries are combined in a saucepan, sherry is poured on top. Sugar, orange zest, orange juice, water and cinnamon are added last.
Cranberry sauce is so easy to make… just simmer on the stove until the berries break down and the sauce begins to thicken.
When I met my husband, I remember him telling me how much he loved cranberry sauce (the gelatinous blob from the can, of course). For many years, he wouldn’t be adventurous enough to eat my homemade cranberry sauce. “Too chunky,” he complained.
Fortunately, he has gotten over that silliness. Homemade cranberry sauce doesn’t last more than a day or two in my house now!
The addition of sherry adds robust flavor to this sauce. The Holland House Cooking Wines are all ideal for cooking. There is 1 teaspoon of salt per cup in their cooking wines to make it stable for long shelf life in your pantry (so if there is salt called for in your recipe, you can reduce the amount of added salt in your recipe). Most table wines will cook away during the cooking process. The rich flavor of Holland House Cooking Wines makes them ideal for standing the heat during the cooking process and allowing the flavor of the wines to shine through.
This is a great recipe to make for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Let me know if you try it, and use it up in turkey sandwich leftovers!
