A cup of coffee and a thought, cranberry sauce.

We all have cranberry sauce or sometimes chutney at Thanksgiving  Do you prefer homemade cranberry sauce or from a can? Do you like the jelly or the chunky sauce from the can?
I prefer homemade. I booze it up a bit with some wine. Most of the alcohol cooks out but leaves the flavor. If out of a can I like the jelly.

My cranberry sauce:
1 bag of fresh cranberries
1 cup of  sugar
1/2 cup of Reisling wine
 1/2 tsp orange zest

Bring cranberries, wine, sugar, and zest to a boil. then reduce heat to a simmer. You will hear cranberries pop as they cook. The liquid will reduce by half after 15-20 minutes. Can be frozen. Is Amazing on vanilla ice cream.
