eola hills wine cellars – “Cranberry-Cherry Relish with Port-Style Wine”

Now exported worldwide, cranberries have been
cultivated along the South Coast of Oregon since
1885, and sweet cherries came west to Oregon
in 1850. 

Tart and sweet, this delicious relish pairs well
with roasted lamb, duck, chicken or turkey and
Oregon Pinot noir wine.

  • zest and juice from one lemon
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves

  2. In a medium saucepan, combine remaining ingredients with the berries.

  3. Simmer for 20 minutes until the sauce coats the back of a spoon.

  4. Chill at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
