The addition of a Belgian Quadrupel ale to a tart cranberry sauce adds unique blend of dried fruit flavors to this quintessential Thanksgiving side dish. The days of the canned cranberry sauce are over with this recipe! Outside of using this Three Philosophers Cranberry Sauce with Turkey, try it with Duck, Pork or Wild Game on the savory side. For the sweet side, try this sauce on Pancakes, Waffles, Aebleskiver or even layered into a Trifle.
In a large pot over medium heat, add the cleaned and picked-over cranberries, Brewery Ommegang Three Philosophers, dried cherries, honey, salt, cinnamon sticks and citrus (cut either into rings or zested | juiced). Stir well, until the mixture comes to a simmer. Turn down the heat to low and let the cranberries pop for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a serving bowl, and the sauce is ready to use.
This sauce may be made up to 5 days before serving and kept refrigerated.
