I love cranberries! You know it’s “fall” when cranberries hit the produce stand. My family likes the good ole cranberry jelly in a can, and I used to like that too untillll I came up with my own concoction after being introduced to Pomegranate juice last spring by Rebecca my nutritionist. *So, just know that pomegranate juice is good for you!
What I love about this is it is sooo easy! And I have made it a dozen times this fall and it is a new favorite for everyone who I have served it to. I thought I’d share with all of you… lucky lucky people!
• 1 bag of Cranberries (16 oz) I bought organic so I needed 2 bags
• 8 oz of Tart Cherry Juice (this can be found in the organic food isle)
• 8 oz of Pomegranate Juice
• 1 c Sugar
• Small jar of Maraschino Cherries, cut in halves
Clean off your cranberries
Then in all of their beautiful red color toss them into a medium sized saucepan.
Measure your Tart Cherry Juice and Pomegranate Juice and add it to the saucepan.
Add the halves of maraschino cherries
If you like it more tart start with a little sugar less and taste it. I’m a firm believer in the “taste test.” Heck, my grandmother rarely measured anything it was all a big “taste test” when she cooked and she was the “boss” of the kitchen for sure!
Stir everything together slowly, look at that great color! And let it cook for about 20 minutes on medium.
After it has cooked through put it in a glass container in the refridge and the secret love is done then, it thickens to a perfect sauce.
The sweet and tart flavor is divine! My husband loved it so much he added it to his favorite dessert good old plain vanilla ice cream and it gave it that extra decedent touch… yummy!
Give it a try and let me know how it turned out! Your family will love it and you don’t have to let them know it’s kind of good for them!
