  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup minced shallot (about 1 medium)
  • 1½ cups dry red wine plus 1 tablespoon, divided
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup fresh cranberries or frozen, thawed

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 1 minute. Add 1½ cups wine, dried and fresh (or thawed) cranberries, sugar, sage, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is reduced by about half, about 10 minutes. Mash the cranberries lightly with a whisk or the back of a spoon.
  2. Whisk the remaining 1 tablespoon wine with cornstarch in a small bowl. While whisking, add the cornstarch slurry to the pan. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in butter until melted.
  • To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days.
