Dried Cherry Cranberry Sauce

Note from Cheri: Dried cherries and fresh cranberries pair beautifully. Cloves are a festive touch and some spice for a complex cranberry sauce that will have your Thanksgiving dinner guests talking.

This recipe can be prepared up to 4 days ahead of time. Refrigerate until use.

2 1/2 C cranberry juice cocktail
2 C tart dried cherries
1 C sugar
1 package, 12 oz., fresh cranberries
1/4 tsp. ground cloves

Makes about 4 cups

Bring cranberry juice to a simmer in heavy, large saucepan. Remove from heat. Add dried cherries and let stand 10 minutes. Mix in sugar, cranberries and cloves. Cook over medium-high heat until cranberries pop – about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Chill until cold. Sauce will thicken as it cools.
