We have the most amazing citrus cranberry sauce that is family friendly which is perfect on, well, almost anything really. But we wanted to do something fun with wine, and came up with this Adult Port Cranberry Sauce. Bazinga!
It's Canadian Thanksgiving! My sister and brother-in-law are coming to visit!
Coming to visit where, you may be asking – if you remember that I am currently homeless, aka “home-ful“. I have the greatest people in my life. My friend Pam is lending us her place for a Thanksgiving weekend.
My sister, Devi, and I love cooking and creating together! You may remember that she is the reason that I got into the paleo lifestyle in the first place. To be honest, most of our family get-togethers are food-centric, regardless of anything else that is going on. Or maybe that's just where my focus is, lol. Here is the perfect example. #foodlove
Oh! And we get to go Halloween shopping together! It's been forever! My favorite! What are your costume plans this year? I imagine there are going to be a ton of Pennywise clowns from Stephen King's It this year. Man, the remake is way creepier than the original, as good as that one was. Anyway…
We're not planning on doing a full turkey this year – WHAT?! I know. Although Holley has me reconsidering this assuming we can find the perfect little bird today, the Friday of Thanksgiving. We'll see.
Or… I might just be making not-so-paleo aged cheddar turkey grilled cheese sandwiches on real sourdough. I'm so intrigued by real sourdough bread and how the bacteria involved break down many of the offending wheat proteins.
Regardless of what form of turkey we have this weekend, we will be enjoying it with our Adult Port Cranberry Sauce. Happy Thanksgiving!
- 1/2 cup port
- 4 cups cranberries
- 1/8 maple syrup
Combine all 3 ingredients in a saucepan over high heat, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Cook until cranberries have popped.
Share with loved ones. Er... serve with turkey and share with loved ones. Yeah, that sounds better.
We used Okanagan Crush Pad's Narrative Fortified Wine (port), but you can experiment with different ports of course.
