Homemade Cranberry and Dried Cherry Sauce

01 Jan

Brought to us by Jessica

2 1/2 cups cranberry juice
1 cup golden brown sugar, packed
1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1 6-ounce package dried cherries (tart or not)*
1 12-ounce bag cranberries

Bring first juice to a boil in a medium saucepan and stir in the sugar until it dissolves.

Add cherries and cook for 2 minutes. Add cranberries and cook until berries pop, stirring occasionally. This will take about 10 minutes.

Transfer to a large bowl, cover and chill overnight. Discard cinnamon stick before serving.

Serve cold or at room temperature.

Makes about 4 cups.

(Jessica) I would like to also add a couple notes to this recipe:
– I cooked on medium-high heat throughout
– I added the allspice and cinnamon stick at the same time as adding the brown sugar
