Cranberry Sauce with Port and Dried Figs - Another holiday favorite!

1 2/3 cups ruby port

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

¼ cup (packed) golden brown sugar

8 dried black mission figs, stemmed and chopped

1 6-inch long sprig fresh rosemary

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

1 12-ounce bag fresh cranberries

¾ cup sugar

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in medium saucepan.
  2. Bring to boil, stirring until sugar dissolves.
  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 10 minutes.
  4. Discard rosemary.
  5. Mix in cranberries and ¾ cup sugar.
  6. Cook over medium heat until liquid is slightly reduced and berries burst, stirring occasionally, about 6 minutes. Cool.
  7. Transfer sauce to bowl, chill until cold. 
* FYI if you mess it up and throw everything in at once it still works! Yup one stressed out year I made this the wrong way and it still ended up being amazing.  Also it's great the next week on turkey sandwiches.
