Cranberry Wine Mold
Cranberry wine mold makes a sensuous party treat. Fresh cranberries are available in the fall and this is the best time to make this luscious recipe. Tart and flavorful cranberries combine well with rich and intensely flavored wine. Choose fruity reds that pair well with cranberries like Beaujolais or Pinot Noir. The mold is set using raspberry flavored gelatins. Nuts and sugar are also added to the mix to give texture and sweetness. Use walnuts or pecans for an exquisite wine mold. One of the easy wine tasting experience you can enjoy and will cherish.
A more sophisticated version of jello shots, cranberry wine mold is not as intoxicating as the frat party favorite but will also give a gentle and pleasant buzz that is ideal for Sunday afternoons or weekday parties. Cranberry is a small red fruit that contains a lot of antioxidants beneficial for the health. Together with red wine, which is also packed with heart-healthy benefits, this makes quite a fabulous concoction. Cranberries grow in North America and often sold canned, frozen or dried in the grocery. They are also available fresh when they are in season.
250gms fresh cranberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup red wine
3/4 cup water
2 ½ tablespoon package gelatins - raspberry-flavored
1 cup finely chopped nuts
In a bowl rinse the cranberries well. To this add sugar, wine and water, stir to blend. Bring to boiling over medium heat. Simmer and allow it to cook for about 5 minutes till the cranberries become tender.
Remove from the heat and add in gelatin and keep stirring until the gelatin dissolves.
Place the saucepan in the freezer and chill, stirring several times, for 30 minutes, or until the gelatin becomes syrupy. Throw in the chopped walnuts to this and mix well.
Pour this into molding of your choice and allow it to freeze overnight. The next day dip the mold into a pan of hot water for 30 seconds. Invert the mold onto the serving plate. Return the gelatin to the refrigerator until serving time.
