Dunksgiving Classics: Black Tea Spiced Cranberry Sauce and a Coffee Maple Glaze

What would Thanksgiving be without staples like cranberry sauce, and of course, a glazed turkey? For our annual Dunksgiving celebration, we are serving up these classics with a Dunkin’ twist. From our Culinary Test Kitchen to yours, here are our recipes for Bold Breakfast Black™ Tea Spiced Cranberry Sauce and and a Coffee Maple Glaze for your Thanksgiving turkey.

Cranberry

 

Bold Breakfast Black™ Tea Spiced Cranberry Sauce

This is not canned Cranberry sauce. Bring your Thanksgiving spread to the next level our homemade, spiced cranberry sauce. It’s made with our Bold Breakfast Black™ Tea, a bold, full leaf black tea that compliments the cranberry sauce perfectly. Check out the recipe below!

Ingredients

  • 6 Bold Breakfast Black™ tea sachets
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 2 bags of cranberries
  • 3 oranges, zested and juiced
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 whole star anise
  • 4 whole cardamom pods

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, steep the tea sachets in boiling water for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove the tea sachets.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and cook over medium heat until the cranberries burst and the mixture thickens.
  4. Remove whole spices.
  5. Chill and serve.

 

Turkey

 

Coffee Maple Glaze

Now for the star of the show: the turkey! This coffee maple glaze is simply two ingredients, but it really brings a nice flavor to your Thanksgiving bird. It is certainly a Dunksgiving favorite!

Ingredients

  • 1 Dunkin’ Original Blend Box O’ Joe
  • 2 cups maple syrup

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, combine coffee and maple syrup.
  2. Cook over medium high heat until reduced by ¾. The mixture will look thick and shiny
  3. Brush onto your finished turkey (we like fried but roasted turkey works too!)
  4. For added chef points, use a blow torch to finish your turkey. This makes the glaze more caramelized and gives the turkey skin nice texture.
