Making Cranberry Mustard Sauce

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Every year do a little something different with the cranberry sauce, adding fruit, nuts, spices and libations. With a big bag of jeweled Wisconsin cranberries in the fridge, I need to get moving. While I love cranberries, I want them to be more purposeful than just sauce. I want a little spice or zing or some flavor to put it beyond jam, so I can enjoy it beyond the holidays.

I made a rustic cranberry sauce with only half the sugar, wine, and mustard seeds soaked in wine vinegar. Instead of blending the mustard seeds I left them whole, which adds great texture and flavor, somewhere between a chutney and a mustard. This sauce pairs perfectly with tangy goat cheese on crackers, and makes an excellent turkey sandwich. Who wants leftovers?

Ingredients:

• 1/2 cup yellow mustard seeds (or combination of brown, black and yellow for extra zing)
• 2/3 cup wine vinegar
• 1/2 cup red wine
• 2 c whole cranberries
• 1 cup sugar
• 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions:



1. In a glass jar, soak mustard seeds in vinegar overnight. They should swell to almost a full cup. Add more vinegar if they seem dry.
