Spiced Cranberry Sauce with Wine

Here is the second installment in my Thanksgiving series (two posts on the same topic can be considered a series, right?).  The first installment was for my favorite Thanksgiving carb, Herbed Oyster Stuffing.  Now we have its partner in crime, cranberry sauce.  It’s a tangy, fresh accompaniment to hearty Thanksgiving fare.

I’ve attempted many butternut squash soup recipes…
