Cranberry Orange Sauce with White Wine

I love cranberries! Cranberry juice, cranberry cocktails, cranberry relish, homemade cranberry sauce, and even that canned jelly stuff with the can lines. I am making Thanksgiving dinner for 8; It will be the 5 of us plus my parents and brother. I know everyone likes the canned stuff. I have no problem with the canned stuff. But today when I was finishing up my last minute veggie shopping, I grabbed a bag and an orange. Then this happened today. I already ate at least one serving of it…

Cranberry Orange Sauce Recipe- serves 4- or maybe just one =) I adapted this from Rachel Ray… instead of just water, I added some Riesling
Zest and juice of 1 orange
1/2 cup of water——I added 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup white wine (Riesling)
1/2 cup sugar, plus more if desired
Pinch salt
1 12 ounce bag fresh cranberries, rinsed

In a medium saucepan, heat 1/2 cup water (or the water and wine mixture) with the orange zest, orange juice, sugar and salt over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the cranberries and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the cranberries burst and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 7 minutes. Sweeten with more sugar, if desired. Let the sauce cool to room temperature before serving.

Once cooled, I put mine in a cute medium sized jam jar.
