Cranberry Glaze

  • yield: Makes about 1 1/4 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 shallot, finely chopped (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 2 fresh sage leaves
  • 1 teaspoon whole juniper berries
  • 1 cup fresh or thawed cranberries
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup apple cider, plus more if needed
  • 1/2 cup red-currant jelly
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add shallot, and cook until translucent, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Add sage leaves and juniper berries; cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add cranberries, maple syrup, apple cider, jelly, salt and pepper. Raise heat to medium-high, and simmer until cranberries are soft and starting to burst, about 3 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Transfer cranberry mixture to a food processor, and puree until smooth. Pass puree through a fine sieve into a small saucepan.

  3. Step 3

    Return glaze to stove, and simmer gently over medium heat until it has thickened, about 10 to 15 minutes; you should have about 1 1/4 cups. If glaze seems too thick, thin it with a little apple cider. Keep warm until ready to use.
