Old-Fashioned Cranberry Sauce

  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup port wine (I used a sweet red wine)
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 (12 oz) package of fresh cranberries
  • 2 tsp. grated orange ride
Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add onion and saute for 4 minutes.  Add sugar and the next 4 ingredients (through cranberries) and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, and simmer for 8 minutes or until cranberries pop.  Remove from heat, and stir in orange rind.  Serve chilled or at room temperature.  Enjoy!
