Cranberry Fig Sauce

When you cook for Thanksgiving, you’re not really cooking for one night. You’re cooking for one night and one day of leftovers. So when you plan on cooking cranberries for 8 people, it’s really like planning for 16 because everyone wants a full Thanksgiving meal the next day. So with that in mind, I poured in 3 bags of cranberries, 1 bottle of wine (mixed with sugar), orange juice, figs, more sugar, spices and stirred. It. Is. Delicious.

3-10 oz bags frozen cranberries
1 bottle of wine, mixed with 1/3-2/3 cups of sugar
2 1/4 cups orange juice
1-7 oz.bag dried figs, quartered
1 2/3 cup sugar, plus more to taste
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg

1. Dissolve between 1/3 plus 1/6 cup of sugar in wine
2. Mix all ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and let simmer for about 15 – 20 minutes. Tweak sugar and spices as needed.
3. Turn heat off and let cool completely before covering and placing in the fridge overnight.
