Its almostThanksgiving and every year I try to make a new variety of cranberry sauce.
This year Im combining my heritage with American heritage.
Glogg is a mulled wine we drink every holiday all around Scandinavia.
Its red wine with a dash of vodka steeped with spices and dried fruit.
Its really good and quite lethal.
It works really well with a cranberry sauce, the spices and the red wine with the sweet berries are perfect.

1 shallot, finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup raisins/sultanas
