Cranberry-Currant Sauce

Cranberry-Currant Sauce

Makes 1 3/4 cups

30 minutes or fewer

This sweet-tart condiment is a pleasing accompaniment to the tempeh ||sausage|| and roasted potatoes.
  • 1 ½ tsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ tsp. minced fresh ginger
  • Pinch cayenne
  • 1 ½ cups cranberries
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice (from 2 to 3 oranges)
  • ⅓ cup dried currants
  • 1 ½ tsp. honey, or to taste
  1. In small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and cayenne and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Stir in cranberries, orange juice and currants. Cover and simmer until cranberries are broken and mixture is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Stir in honey and season lightly with salt to taste. Serve hot, chilled or at room temperature.

I think there may be a mistake with the amount of onion. Visually, the finished product doesn't look like the photo, and the yield was over 2 cups. Next time I would use 1/2 an onion. Good flavor, though.
