Cranberry Sauce with Dried Figs


This cranberry sauce with dried Calimyrna figs has a chutney-like texture. A little red wine makes the sauce rich in flavor and ruby red in color.

  • 1 bag fresh or frozen (thawed) cranberries (12 ounces)
  • 5 ounces dried Calimyrna figs, halved (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine or cranberry juice


  1. In a small saucepan, combine all the ingredients; cook over low heat until most of the cranberries have burst, about 15 minutes.

  2. Transfer cranberry sauce to a small bowl. Let cool; cover, and refrigerate up to 3 days. Let stand at room temperature, 30 minutes, before serving.
