Not only good if you serve a big turkey on Thanksgiving or Christmas ;)
Cranberry Sauce is something you do not see often here in Germany. You get (dried) cranberries everywhere now, but sauce? Not really. Probably because we don’t have the traditional turkey dishes where this sauce is mainly used. Anyways – even if you can buy it wherever you are – here is an easy recipe to make it at home. The good thing – it is made with dried cranberries, so even we here in Germany can make it. Yay! ;))
INGREDIENTS / ZUTATEN
1 tsp. cornstarch
3 tsp. brown sugar
1 cup (120g) dried cranberries
1/2 cup (150g) lemon marmalade
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
pinch of allspice (Piment)
1 TL Speisestärke
3 TL brauner Zucker
120g getrocknete Cranberries
1/8 TL gemahlener Ingwer
Prise Piment (Nelkenpfeffer)
DIRECTIONS / ZUBEREITUNG
2. Try the sauce (be careful it is really hot!) and add some more sugar if you want it sweeter. If it is fine, take from the heat and let cool down. The sauce is good to go now. If you want the sauce without the big cranberries add it to a blender and mix until you get a smooth sauce. If it is too thick add some more cranberry juice.
2. Die Soße probieren (vorsicht sehr heiß!) und ggf. noch etwas Zucker zugeben, wenn sie süßer sein soll. Vom Herd nehmen und abkühlen lassen. Die Soße ist jetzt fertig. Wem die Cranberries allerdings zu große sind, der kann alles noch im Mixer zu einer glatten Masse zerkleinern. Sollte die Soße zu dickflüssig werden, einfach noch etwas Cranberry Saft zugeben und verrühren.
Here is a version of the recipe you can print easily.
- 1 cup (240ml) cranberry juice
- 1 tsp. cornstarch
- 3 tsp. brown sugar
- 1 cup (120g) dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup (150g) lemon marmalade
- 1/8 tsp. ground ginger
- pinch of allspice (Piment)
- In a saucepan mix the cranberry juice, cornstarch and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and let cook for about 5 minutes whil stirring constantly. The sauce should reduce to about 1/3. Add the dried cranberries, lemon marmalade, ground ginger and allspice. Reduce heat and let simmer for about 8-10 minutes - the dried cranberries should get some volume back.
