Yield: 6 cups

A gentle hint of chai tea lends warm spice flavors to this sweetly aromatic, simple sauce. Pay close attention to the timing, though: Too much steeping will bring out the tea’s bitter notes.

Chai-Spiced Orange-Cranberry Sauce
Photo/Art by Michael Piazza

Ingredients:

  • 2-1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 5 bags black chai tea
  • 8 cups fresh or frozen cranberries (about 2-1/2 bags)
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice

Instructions:

In a 4-quart pot over high heat, combine 1-1/2 cups water and sugar. Cover and bring to a boil; then reduce heat to medium-low and add teabags. Simmer exactly 2 minutes; then remove teabags with a slotted spoon.

Add cranberries and increase heat to medium-high. Simmer, stirring often, until cranberries soften splitting their skins, and sauce thickens a bit, 10 to 15 minutes.

Remove from heat, and stir in orange juice. Let cool to room temperature before serving (the sauce will thicken further as it cools). Or cover and refrigerate up to 5 days.
