Manischewitz cranberries!

Nyleve | Apr 10, 2006 05:26 PM

The only time of the year that I will allow the wretched swill otherwise known as Manischewitz Concord Grape Wine into my home is Passover. So today I was about to make the Cabernet Cranberries to go with the roast turkey I'm serving for the seder meal. When all of a sudden it struck me - like a bolt of lightning - HEY! I bet it would be GREAT made with Manischewitz! And I'm pleased to report that I made it this afternoon and it is FANTASTIC! Seriously, folks. The grapey sweetness just works so well with the cranberries. Incredible but true.

I have searched on the site for the original recipe posted by I-can't-remember-who (a million apologies) but cannot find it. So here's my adaptation:

Manischewitz Cranberries
1 12-oz. bag fresh cranberries
1 cup Manischewitz Concord Grape Wine
2/3 cup granulated sugar (reduced amount from original because this wine is SO sweet)
2 tsp. grated orange zest
1 small cinnamon stick

In a saucepan, combine the wine and sugar and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the cranberries, orange zest and cinnamon stick. Let the mixture return to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the cranberries are all burst and the sauce is thickened.

Bon appetit!
