Ingredients

  • Rind from 1 orange, finely julienned
  • Rind from 1 lemon, finely julienned
  • 1 (12-ounce) jar red currant jelly
  • 1 cup Ruby port
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice from 2 to 3 oranges
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice from about 2 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Procedures

  1. 1

    Fill a small sauce pan with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Place orange and lemon rind in boiling water and blanch for 5 minutes. Strain rinds from water.

  2. 2

    Return now empty saucepan to stove and add in port, red currant jelly, orange juice, lemon juice, mustard, and ginger. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking to combine.
