  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a small saucepan , heat the orange and lemon juices with 1/2 cup of the port. Add the zest and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Reserve. In a medium saucepan, combine the cranberries, onion, 2 cups port, ginger , brown sugar, salt, pepper, and cinnamon . Over medium high heat, cook until the relish thickens, 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup port, the orange liqueur , and the reserved orange and lemon juice and zest mixture. Set aside. Cut off the top 1/4-inch of each apple. Using a melon baller , remove the core of the apple, being careful not to pierce the sides or bottom of the apples, to make apple "cups". Place the apple cups in a small baking dish . Spoon the cranberry relish into the apples. Spoon the excess relish around the apples. Cover with foil and bake until apples are tender, about 30 to 45 minutes.
