    Wonderful recipe for cranberry sauce. Easy to do and can be served hot, cold or at room temperature.

    Absolutely Delicious! Thank you to the Voltaggios for inspiring me to do something a little out of the ordinary. I have always thought it a huge shame to open a can of cranberry after all the effort that goes into making the most special meal of the year. I made two slight modifications due to not having exactly what I needed. I don't have a zester that cuts the zest into strips, so used a microplane and I couldn't find star anise, so used anise seed - effectively changing the final product in that the zest and anise stayed in. I thought this was extremely easy to do and the dish was a huge hit. Everyone just loved it.

    I gave it the fourth star for the wine reduction, which provided an interesting flavor. Definitely make use of the temperature of the reduction provided in the recipe - it takes some time to reduce and it helped to be able to shoot for a definite endpoint, plus this will prevent having to over-simmer after adding the fruit. I also added ~1/3 of a vanilla bean, which worked for me. Next time, I might look for a more flavorful wine; the one I used was very smooth, but I think a little more tartness might come out nicely at the end. I halved the recipe though, and the other half of that bottle was the perfect accompaniment!

    Had to simmer for longer than recommended because had not cooked down and concentrated enough by ten minutes. Sweet, yet tart...wine has a nice pronounced flavor in the finished product. Nice sutble taste of aromatics. Was not overly wowed, but should do the job for thanksgiving cranberries.

    I've made this recipe twice now. Both times I very much liked the flavor the Riesling gave the compote, but I liked it better after I added vanilla extract and stevia powder.
