- Fried Chicken Day
Merlot Cranberry Sauce
- 1/2 Cup merlot, or any dark red wine
- 1/2 Cup water
- 1/2 Cup molasses
- 1/2 Cup brown sugar
- 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
- One 12-ounce package fresh cranberries
- 1 Cup toasted coarsely chopped walnuts
There's nothing a little merlot can't fix, including cranberry sauce. Forget store-bought, because you just can't buy this at a store. Relax, make some cranberry sauce, drink a little wine, and perhaps, put some in the cranberry sauce.
Put all of the ingredients except for the walnuts in a saucepan and cook over medium-high heat until the liquid becomes thick and syrupy, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from the heat, and stir in the walnuts.
