Cranberry-Pinon Sauce

Cranberry-Pinon Sauce

This is a great sauce to make, for dressing up leftover turkey.

8 cups turkey stock (or chicken broth)
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp. dried thyme
2 cups dried cranberries
2 cups apple cider
1 cup dried currants
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts

Combine stock, herbs, cranberries, cider and currants in saucepan over medium heat. Cook until reduced by half (about 4 cups). Season to taste with salt. Stir in pine nuts, serve over hot turkey. (I like to put the turkey on a bed of mashed squash, then serve this sauce on top)

Note: Do not substitute pear juice for apple cider. We tried this once and it was terrible! You can use apple juice if you don't have cider.
