MAKES 2 CUPS

1 cup port wine

1 cup sugar

1 tablespoon juniper berries

10 black peppercorns

1 (12-ounce) bag cranberries

Combine wine, sugar, juniper and peppercorns in a non-reactive saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the cranberries and return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until berries burst and are soft, about 10 minutes.

Push berries through a wire sieve using a wooden spoon to push through all of the pulp and create a smooth sauce. Discard seasonings. (Can be done up to 3 days before serving. Put sauce into the serving bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving; it will gel upon cooling.)
