Defiance Thanksgiving Cranberry Relish
We are serving our 2018 Petite Sirah at our feast this Thursday, and since the bottle will be open... We recommend trying our cranberry relish, infused with this classic wine for a delicious twist on a holiday classic. This dry, full bodied, high tannin, moderate acid wine compliments the tartness and sweetness in the fruit for the perfect relish. It cuts the savory, umami and fattiness in your gravy and balances your turkey dinner, making your plate pop with color and flavor!
1 cup of 2018 Petite Sirah
1 bag of cranberries
1 teaspoon of orange zest ¾ cup of sugar
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 cinnamon stick
½ teaspoon of fresh thyme, chopped
Combine wine, cranberries, and ¾ cup of sugar in a saucepan.
Bring to a boil.
Add thyme, cinnamon stick, maple syrup, and zest and reduce to simmer.
Simmer for about 10 minutes, cranberries will begin popping.
When thickened and jammy, remove from heat and taste.
Serve while warm.
