Cranberry juice should not come in a can. It shouldn't have marshmallows and it should not be cut with a knife. Just my thoughts. This recipe is an amalgamation of 4 or five others that I read and liked parts of. I get my agar-agar at the health food store in the bulk section but I suppose in a pinch you could use gelatin.
Pomegranate Cranberry Sauce
12 oz fresh cranberries
1 c POM juice
1 1/2 c raw sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp orange peel
pinch of salt
Place the the cranberries, pom juice and sugar, cinnamon, orange peel and agar-agar and salt in sauce pan. On medium to high heat until sugar has melted and cranberries begin to pop and release their juices. Stir occasionally. Bring the mixture to a boil. once boiling lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes until slightly thick.
It was fairly thick at this point but I liked it even more once it had a chance to hang out in the fridge over night!
I apologize for the HORRIBLE picture, but it was from my cellphone and I wanted to be able to post all the Thanksgiving recipes before people were finishing up their Thanksgiving plans!
