    I went to vote on the Ocean Spray Cranberry recipe contest and found this recipe and it looks so very good!



    1/4 cup sherry
    1/4 cup Ocean Spray® Cranberry Juice Cocktail
    freshly ground black pepper to taste
    1/2 cup blanched almonds, toasted**
    10 ounces fresh or frozen green beans
    1 small onion, sliced
    2 tablespoons water
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 cloves garlic, sliced
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 teaspoon cumin seed*
    1 teaspoon curry powder
    4 ounces Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries


    If using fresh green beans, cook in salted boiling water for 3 to 4 minutes or until just tender. Drain; rinse in cold water.

    Combine onion, water and salt in large skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until water evaporates. Add beans, garlic, butter, cumin and curry powder; stir to coat beans. Stir in dried cranberries, sherry, juice cocktail and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until liquid evaporates and mixture is heated through. Sprinkle with almonds.

    Makes 2 servings.

    *If desired, lightly toast cumin seed in small skillet and pound with mortar and pestle to bring out flavor.

    **To toast almonds, cook in small nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant. Toasted salted Marcona almonds can be substituted.
