We’ll be sampling this recipe at our Dec. 17th Holiday Party on Facebook Live. The cranberry sauce perfectly matches the bright color and flavor of the Petillant Naturel.
1 cup Blackbird Cranberry Sauce (may substitute store-bought sauce)
4 oz. Chevre (fresh goat cheese) with herbs (our favorite is Lively Run from the FLX)
Herb crackers or crostini
Top each cracker or crostini with ½ Tablespoon of Chevre. Top the chevre with 1 teaspoon of cranberry sauce.
Blackbird Cranberry Sauce Adapted from Food & Wine magazine
Preparation time: 30 min; Makes about 2 cups
½ cup Blackbird red wine (or substitute any red wine)
Three 1-by-3-inch strips of orange zest, cut into thin matchsticks
½ cup fresh orange juice
12 oz. fresh cranberries
¾ cup sugar
In a medium saucepan, combine the wine with the orange zest and orange juice and bring to a boil. Add the cranberries and sugar and simmer over moderately low heat until the sauce is jam-like… about 25 min. Transfer to a bowl and serve warm or at room temperature. The cranberry sauce can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
