  • 100 ml of dry red wine
  • 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

Marinate meat for 30-60 minutes in a mixture of soy sauce, olive oil and spices. To cook cranberry sauce.

Cranberries with sugar put in a saucepan, add water, bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes.

Then add the remaining ingredients (wine, vinegar, pepper and salt) and heat the mixture in half — about 30 minutes.

If there is no time to wait, you can add a thickener (starch or a little flour and cook until thick).

When the sauce is ready, remove the pepper and discard.

Fry meat under the grill until ready, for 20-30 minutes (depending on the type of grill and the size of the pieces).

Put on a dish, pour cranberry the sauce.

Serve with country-style potatoes.

Now, under the onslaught of new fashionable products, alas, they have forgotten about this old recipe tested over the years. By the way, very unfair.

We offer you to plunge into the most pleasant gastronomic memories from childhood — we are preparing an easy, airy and healthy dessert with cranberry juice

What do you need:

  • 1 st cranberries
  • 1 ct sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of water
  • 3 tbsp. l semolina

What to do:
Of cranberries squeeze the juice (it is better to use a juicer) and put it in the fridge.

Cranberry put the cake in a saucepan, add water and bring the liquid to a boil.

After that boil for 5 minutes.

Filter the resulting broth through a small strainer, throw out the cake.

Pour broth back into the saucepan and bring to a boil again. In a boiling liquid in a thin stream a little and, constantly stirring, pour out the semolina.

Simmer for about 15 minutes.

At the end of cooking add sugar, mix, and when it is completely dissolved, remove the saucepan from the stove and cool to room temperature.

Then pour the chilled cranberry juice and beat the mixture until it doubles in volume.

Pay attention that the colder the mixture is, the easier it will be whipped and the air will turn out. To do this, you can immerse the container with the mixture in another, slightly larger in size, filled with ice water.

My advice: after beating, cool the mixture for an additional 30 minutes in the freezer.

Transfer the cooled mixture to a pastry syringe and fill the ice cream bowls with it. If you do not have a pastry syringe, use a spoon, but in this case, the weight will be less air. Put the cream with mousse in the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes.

Serve the mousse chilled.

Fondant au chocolat — french melting chocolate dessert, we suggest cooking it with cranberry the sauce!

For the sauce also suitable berries cowberries, blueberries or currant.

Fondan — A relative of the well-known muffin, only with a tender, melting middle. According to different versions, the fondant turned out because of an error.

They say that a chocolate cake was simply not baked and was served with a liquid center. The resourceful Frenchmen got out, and a new dessert appeared in French cuisine.

However, in fondane, not only its texture is attractive, but also the fact that it will take you only 10 minutes to bake.

What do you need:

  • 50 g dark chocolate
  • 50 g butter
  • 50 g brown sugar
  • 20-30 g flour
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 1/2 Art. fresh or frozen cranberries
  • sugar
  • some water (if the berries are fresh)
  • mint leaves and a few blueberry berries for decoration

What to do:
To cook cranberry sauce. Cranberries wash, sort and set aside a handful of berries for decoration. The main part of the berries folded in a saucepan, add sugar to taste, salt and pour a little water (so that it covers the berries).

Put the saucepan on the lowest fire and cook for 10 minutes.

Boil the berries slightly cool, then punch in a blender to a state of smooth mashed potatoes, and refrigerate.

Preheat oven to 210 ° C.

Cook the dough. Melt chocolate in a water bath. In a separate bowl, melt the butter, then beat it with sugar, add the egg and mix, then add the melted chocolate to the mixture and mix again thoroughly.

Gradually stir in the flour.

Prepare molds, richly smeared with oil and sprinkled with flour or cocoa powder.

Each mold is first half filled with chocolate mixture, then put a few berries cranberries and top with the remaining chocolate mixture.

Bake for about 10-15 minutes in a preheated oven.

If you want to get a liquid center, 10 minutes is enough.

Remove ready-made fondants from the molds onto a dessert plate, sprinkle with powdered sugar on top, decorate with berries, mint leaves and pour cranberry the sauce.

Serve fondant warm.

Of cranberries get tasty drinks, smoothies — one of them.

The smoothies of the right consistency are moderately dense and satisfying — this is a great option for a morning breakfast or an evening snack.

What do you need:

  • 1,5 glasses cranberries (fresh or frozen, however, lingonberries will do)
  • 1 banana
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 2 tbsp. l instant oatmeal or cereal flakes
  • sugar or honey to taste

What to do:
In the bowl of the blender, add all the ingredients for a smoothie and beat them for 2-3 minutes.

If you exclude flakes, and water is replaced by milk, you get a healthy milkshake, which children will certainly appreciate.
