Cranberry & Port Wine Molded Sauce

This is a very special cranberry sauce which I have modified and then adapted for the microwave from a Gourmet magazine from 1991. I do not like cranberries at all... but the first time I made it I was eating it out of the refrigerator with a spoon.


8-10 depending on how much each person eats.


1 12 oz bag of fresh cranberries 2 cups white sugar 1 cup Tawny Port Juice and zest of 1 lemon ½ cup of dried cranberries 1-2 teaspoons of grated fresh ginger

Nutritional information



Place all ingredients into an 8 cup glass measuring bowl (this needs to be tall as it will bubble up. Microwave on high 10-20 minutes, depending on your microwave's power, or until the fresh cranberries have popped and the mixture thickens. Pour into a decorative mold that has been sprayed with a cooking spray and cool to room temperature. Unmold to serve. Keeps well in refrigerator if you have any left over.
