Preparation of lingonberry pork sauce:

Step 1. Cook the lingonberries.

We take cranberries. Washing under running water in a strainer or colander so that the water drains. If they are frozen, then let them stand for a little (30 minutes) at room temperature to defrost. I do not recommend washing the berries after thawing, because we wash off the juice that is released during defrosting. Pour cold water into the pan, pour the lingonberries there and put on fire. There is slight subtlety. Usually, recipes suggest boiling lingonberries until soft, but I know that this is a delicate berry. You can just bring water with lingonberries to a boil, cover and remove from heat. Let it stand 5-10 minutes. After this, we pour the lingonberry broth into a bowl (you can then make fruit juice), and rub the lingonberry through a sieve again into the pan.

Step 2. Cook the sauce.

Dilute lingonberry puree with the resulting broth. Add sugar, cinnamon and mix everything. We take 50 grams of red dry wine. Pour into the sauce, stir. We taste it. The taste should be rich, sweet and sour. Often wine changes the taste of the sauce to too sour. If there is not enough sugar, add a little more. We put the sauce on the fire and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 5 minutes.

Step 3. Add Starch.

Pour starch into a glass. Pour 50 grams of cold water into a glass with starch and stir until smooth. We do all this quickly, because the sauce is on fire. Pour the starchy mass into the sauce continuously stirring. Bring the sauce to a boil. Remove the sauce from the heat and set to cool. The sauce is ready.

Step 4. Serve cranberry sauce to pork.

Serve cold cranberry sauce to boiled or fried pork. Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - If you need to quickly defrost frozen lingonberries, you can pour it with boiling water and leave for 10 minutes.

- - If you like lingonberry berries in a sauce, then you can not rub the lingonberries through a sieve, but grind the broth with berries in a blender. A few whole berries will remain.

- - Cowberry sauce goes well not only with pork. It can be served with turkey and fried chicken.
