Title: Mini Maple Turkey Panini with Riesling Cranberry Relish


Riesling Cranberry Relish

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup Mirassou Riesling
Juice and zest of 1 orange, divided
1/2 cup minced crystallized ginger
1 (12-oz.) bag fresh cranberries

Maple Turkey Panini

2 tablespoons maple syrup
4 slices sourdough bread
4 slices dark rye bread
12 slices smoked turkey
1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
2 tablespoons butter


Riesling Cranberry Relish

1. Heat sugar, wine and orange juice in a small pan over low heat. Continue to cook until sugar begins to caramelize and has a nice caramel color.
2. Remove from heat and stir in orange zest and ginger; let cool slightly.
3. Place cranberries in a food processor and pulse on and off to finely chop; add to caramel mixture. (Relish may be made 1 week ahead.)

Maple Turkey Panini

1. To prepare sandwiches, brush a little maple syrup onto one side of sourdough bread slices.
2. Place 3 slices turkey, a little Riesling cranberry relish and ½ cup cheese on each slice then top with dark rye.
3. Spread sandwiches with a little butter and place in a preheated Panini grill; cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is grill marked. (Or cook in a skillet for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, pressing down to compress sandwich.)
4. Cut into 4 triangles and place on a serving tray; serve immediately with remaining cranberry sauce.

Pairing Suggestion: Pair with Mirassou® Monterey County California Riesling
