yeah, baby, this is the bomb......
Cranberry Sauce with Port & Tangerines
1 (12-ounce) bag fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup ruby Port
3 (3- by 1/2-inch) strips tangerine zest
1/3 cup tangerine juice (from about 2 tangerines)
Bring cranberries, sugar, Port, and zest to a simmer in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until cranberries burst, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in juice. Cool completely. Cranberry sauce can be made 1 week ahead and chilled in an airtight container
I've also made a variation where I subbed 1/2 cup of reposado tequila & 1/4 cointreau for the port. Both are good, and were liked by everyone at the table, but I think the port version is the better of the two. If I recall, the original recipe called for 3/4 cup sugar, but still plenty sweet with 1/2 cup. You might want to do both, or a double batch of the port version - great with leftovers!
