1/2 cup Marsala (125 milliliters), or other sweet fortified wine
1/4 cup currants (50 milliliters)
1/4 cup sugar (50 milliliters)
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Grated zest of 1 orange
1 teaspoon corn starch (5 milliliters)
In a medium saucepan combine all ingredients and stir well to thoroughly blend corn starch. Bring to a boil over medium heat and then reduce to low. Simmer uncovered until thickened slightly and cranberries begin to pop, about 10- 15 minutes.
