Cranberry Sauces

Cranberry Sauce

Each recipe makes 2-3 half-pints, depending on how long you let the cranberries break down for. If you want to preserve these, process for 15 minutes in a boiling-water canner.

Basic Cranberry Sauce

1 (12-oz) bag fresh cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup water

Bring water and sugar to boil. Add cranberries and cook over medium heat until berries have broken down to your desired level (15-20 mins). Stir occasionally and, if desired, mash with a potato masher to break berries down further.

Fruit Cobbler

Peach Cobbler with Ice Cream

Make two pie crusts: http://www.audreyandjon.com/recipes/pie-crust

Mix together:
6 cups fresh fruit (blackberries, sliced peaches...)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon appropriate spice (i.e. cinnamon for peaches, cardamom for apricots, lavender for blueberries, lemon zest for blackberries, etc.)
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Let stand for 15-30 minutes, or until fruit is juicy. Add 6 tablespoons tapioca.

Lay a bottom crust down (no side crust!) in a 9x9 square pyrex, then add in the fruit mixture. Place a lattice of the rest of the crust on top.

Created by O Fournier and Cap Vistalba for Constellation Wines, bottled stateside. Decent malbec, but a bit too light. Notes of chocolate, blueberries, coffee

1/2 to 1 cup water (depending on natural juiciness of fruit)
1 package no-sugar pectin (= 3 Tbsp no-sugar pectin)
sugar to taste (probably about 1/4 cup)
