It goes without saying, cranberry sauce is essential to any holiday feast. Although many of us enjoy it straight from the can (ridges and all), this deliciously simple recipe, made even better by a jolt of Sierra Nevada Kellerweis, will make you think twice about which cranberry sauce you’ll serve. The beer’s yeast produces fruity esters that complement the intensely sweet and tart cranberries. You won’t be disappointed with this one, and it’s an easy way to up your culinary game!
- 1 cup Sierra Nevada Kellerweis
- 12 oz. fresh cranberries
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 orange, juiced
- Zest of 1/2 orange
In a thick-bottomed pot, combine Kellerweis, cranberries, sugar, orange juice and orange zest. Fill a glass with the remaining beer to sip while you proceed. Bring contents of the pot to a simmer, stirring occasionally for 15 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
