Apple Cider Spiked Cranberry Sauce



Ingredients:
2 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup apple cider
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons Madeira
2 cinnamon sticks

Directions:
Place the cranberries, apple cider, sugar and cinnamon sticks in a medium saucepan and, stirring occasionally, cook for 20 minutes over medium high heat to reduce and thicken. Remove from heat and stir in the Madeira. Remove the cinnamon sticks and serve.

Spring this recipe!



My thoughts:
We created this cranberry sauce recipe to reflect the other flavors in the food we were serving: the apple cider and Madeira were also present in the turkey, and the gravy. This created a sort of flow of flavors in the meal. Even though each dish had very different tastes, they all had similar notes of flavor.
