Use this succulent, syrupy fruit as a topping for pound cake or ice cream. You can also spoon it over a softened log of goat cheese instead of cream cheese.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together first 8 ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 to 18 minutes or until about one-fourth of liquid remains. Remove from heat, and cool 20 minutes. Discard thyme sprigs, sage leaves, and cinnamon stick.

Step 2

Place cream cheese on a serving platter. Spoon desired amount of cranberry mixture over cream cheese. Serve with crackers.
