Step 1: Throw everything in a pot. Everything includes your cranberries, spices (cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and star ainse), wine, apple cider (because it also goes deliciously with all those mulled wine spices), and maple syrup.
Step 2: Simmer.
That’s it! Serve it and impress your guests.
Tips for making perfect spiced wine cranberry sauce
- In case you didn’t catch on, cranberry sauce is super easy to make and very forgiving. Play around with the recipe and make it your own. Try mixing up the spices, swapping out the cider with fruit juice, using a different type of sweetener, or tweaking the level of sweetness to your liking.
- This sauce can easily be made ahead of time and refrigerated for 1-2 days, or frozen for longer.
- Not into cooking with wine? Make spiced apple cider cranberry sauce instead! Just leave the wine out and increase the amount of cider to 3/4 cup.
- Not all wine is vegan. Check with Barnivore to make sure yours is!
