|Cranberry-Apple Merlot Sauce
Makes about 3 cups / Traditional cranberry sauce often lacks one thing—spice! This recipe uses plenty, and the fruity Merlot balances out the tart cranberries. If it’s too tart for you, use a sweeter apple like Fuji in place of the Granny Smith. Organic wine suggestion: Frey Vineyards Merlot.
2 cups Merlot
1. Combine first 6 ingredients (Merlot through cinnamon sticks) in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook over low heat for 15 minutes.
