Yesterday, we had the privilege of the first melting snow! It is getting colder each day now! This is what we see from in our kitchen:
A few days ago, I had some fresh packets of cranberries that I froze last year. I used 1 packet fresh frozen cranberries of 340 gr that I used in this delicious home-made cranberry cinnamon maple sauce! yum yum! I served it with braised Belgian endive with coconut sugar & with oven baked potatoes & the sauce we served with chicken. MMM! A very festive Seasonal sauce! 🙂 The sauce itself is vegan & gluten-free too! 🙂 So, we need this lovely warm sauce to keep us warm & cosy! 🙂
Recipe: For 4 persons
1 packet of 340 gr cranberries/ I froze my packet last year, used it straight from the freezer
3 big cinnamon sticks
1/2 cup (125 ml) maple syrup
1/2 cup water (125 ml)
- First, open your frozen cranberries. Take out of the package & into a colander. Rinse the frozen cranberries with running water. Check if you can find some nasty black cranberries in here. Discard them. See that all of the little stalks are removed.
- Place cranberries, cinnamon sticks, maple syrup & water into a fitted pot. Mix well with a large spoon & bring to the boil on medium-high heat, stirring often. Cook for about 5-10 minutes or until 3/4 of the berries have popped. When the sauce has thickened, take it off the heat & turn heat off. You have to know that the cranberries still can thicken the sauce further because of the pectin in them. Stir with your spoon to see the final thickness. You want the sauce to be spoonable & that it covers your chicken fillets. Just before serving, remove the 3 cinnamon sticks! You can really taste the lovely cranberries, the cinnamon in here & the maple syrup. The sauce is a bit sweet but not too sweet either! Just right! 🙂 Serve hot over your baked chicken fillets & serve with favorite sides, like above or with something else. MMM! ♥ Stay Tuned & subscribe by email! Join 1,800 email subscribers now!!!
