Cranberry sauce has a similar flavor to Caribbean sorrel and hibiscus drinks. Here's a great way to make a traditional dish in an untraditional way.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup red wine, (pinot noir works well)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 clove
  • 1 Tbs dried hibiscus leaves
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 12 oz package of fresh cranberries

Directions

  • Place hibiscus leaves and clove on a piece of cheesecloth and tie into a tight bundle. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine orange juice, red wine, water, and brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  • Add hibiscus clove bundle to the liquid and boil for 2 minutes.
  • Stir orange zest into mixture and add cranberries. Bring mixture back to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 8 minutes until the liquid reduces. Pour cranberry sauce into a mason jar and let cool uncovered.
  • Store in the fridge for up to a week before Thanksgiving.
