Time: 1 1/2 hours. Julie Wente, of the fifth-generation Wente winemaking family in Livermore, California, bakes the cranberries instead of simmering them the usual way. They glisten on the plate like jewels.
1 bag (12 oz.) fresh or thawed frozen cranberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 to 1/2 cup brandy
2 tablespoons finely shredded orange zest
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 325°. Discard any soft or decayed cranberries.
Mix cranberries, sugar, brandy to taste, and orange zest in an 8- or 9-in. square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, until most of the liquid has evaporated, 1 to 1 1/4 hours, stirring occasionally.
Make ahead: Cover and chill up to 1 week.
