In a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat, combine berries, wine, honey, cinnamon, orange zest and orange juice. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cook until thickened, stirring occasionally, about 7 to 10 minutes. Once the mixture is thickened, remove from heat and let cool.
Place the softened cream cheese on a serving plate or platter. Top with cooled cranberry sauce, chopped pecans and fresh mint. Serve with crackers or bread. Enjoy!
- You can use only frozen cranberries, if desired, or a mix of cranberries and other berries.
- You can use cranberry juice or 1/4 cup lemon juice instead of the dark red wine. Lemon juice may alter the flavor slightly, but it will still taste great.
