Craisins® & Pine Nut Agrodolce


  • 1 cup Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries or 50% Less Sugar
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 small red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest, grated
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Soak the Craisins® in the vinegar for approximately 15 minutes or until softened. Drain the mixture but keep the vinegar.

In a small skillet over low heat, add the vinegar, sugar, red onion and fennel. Simmer the mixture for approximately 10 minutes or until the liquid slightly thickens to a thin syrup. Allow the mixture to cool.

Combine the Craisins®, onion mixture, zest, salt, olive oil, pine nuts and parsley and serve room temperature.

Optional/Chef’s Tip: For a little extra heat, try adding crushed red pepper flakes to this mixture. Add this mixture to the top of your favorite pork, poultry, seafood, grain, noodle or vegetable dishes.
