Sherry Triple Berry Cranberry Sauce

Here’s a new cranberry sauce recipe to try for your holiday dinner:  Sherry Triple Berry Cranberry Sauce

Sherry Triple Berry Cranberry Sauce recipe by

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.

Sherry Triple Berry Cranberry Sauce Process

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.

Sherry Triple Berry Cranberry Sauce Recipe

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!

Sherry Triple Berry Cranberry Sauce Recipe -

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!

    Love the addition of sherry! And I just so happen to have a bottle of that Holland House Sherry Cooking Wine on hand – I think I might have to make *one more* version of cranberry sauce this year. 😉 Thanks for linking to my cinnamon apple cranberry sauce!

    I never thought of adding cooking wine to my cranberry sauce…what a great idea, probably adds a lot of mouthfeel too.

    I love the idea of three berries in the cranberry sauce, I bet the flavors are wonderful. I’m bookmarking this recipe to make for my family this Thanksgiving, what a great alternative to our traditional cranberry sauce.

    That’s so funny about your husband! Does he dislike the canned stuff now? Because after trying homemade cranberry sauce, I can never go back.

    I’ve never tried adding other berries to my sauce but I love the idea! The added sherry sounds delicious, too.

    This is so pretty Lori! My turkey baste uses sherry, it’ll complement it perfectly.

    Funny about your husband’s comment about homemade cranberry sauce being too chunky…glad he came around! My family in law is a big cranberry sauce/jelly from the can too, but I make homemade sauce every year anyway, for me 🙂 Your triple berry version with the sherry vinegar sounds absolutely delicious!
