The combination of cranberries, orange, and Port in this easy sauce makes a wonderful accompaniment for pork, duck, and turkey, writes Theresa Liu.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a 3- to 4-quart pan over medium-high heat, stir together cranberries, orange peel, orange juice, and sugar. Bring mixture to a boil, then lower the heat to maintain a simmer, and cook, stirring frequently, until the berries have broken open and released their juices, 8 to 10 minutes. Add Port and cook 2 minutes longer. Let cool completely and store airtight up to 2 weeks.

Step 2

Love this recipe! For a thicker flavor and consistency I'd recommend the following: Reduce fresh orange juice to 2 tablespoons, substitute brown sugar for the regular sugar, and bake in the oven for one hour at 350 degrees. (Place in deep casserole dish to avoid bubbling splatter!) Goes great with turkey and/or ham. Enjoy....!

This was wonderful and easy! It took 15 minutes to prepare and the family loved it. The port added just the right additional flavor and it was neither too bitter nor too sweet.

of course this was easy, capezy. i like the slight tang of the orange with the richness of the what's that flavor, oh, port, yum! mine wasn't soupy at all but i did have a consistent high simmer on it so it thickened up nicely. i used splenda sugar and i did add a small diced up red delicious apple. can't wait for tomorrow!

I've made this recipe twice for different people and everyone raved about it. Even people who don't like cranberries. Very easy and foolproof. The finished product has a fair amount of liquid so you could either use it as a sauce if it was heated, or use it as a side dish with a slotted spoon.
