  1. Heat oil in a medium-sized pot over medium heat until hot. Add chopped scallion greens and sauté for a few minutes, stirring often, until just softened but not browned.
  2. Stir in spice mixture, cook for a few seconds, then stir in wine, brown sugar, vinegar and cranberries. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then adjust the heat down and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened. It will firm up further upon cooling.
  3. Let cool to room temperature before serving. May be refrigerated in airtight container for up to one week for best flavor and texture. Bring to room temperature before serving.
