Cranberry, Fig & Pinot Noir Chutney

1 ½ cups Pinot Noir
12 dried figs, diced
¾ cup sugar or more to taste
3 strips fresh orange peel
2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
¼ teaspoon kosher salt

1. At least 30 minutes before making the chutney, bring the wine to a simmer in a small saucepan.  Remove from the heat, add the figs and let soak until soft.  Drain, and reserve the soaking liquid.
2. Combine the sugar, 1 ½  cups of water, the reserved soaking liquid, the orange peel and ginger in a large saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until the sugar has completely melted.  Add ½ of the cranberries and cook, stirring occasionally, until the berries have popped and are very soft, about 10 minutes.  Stir in the remaining cranberries and soaked figs and cook for 5 minutes longer.  
3. Remove the orange peel and discard and scrape the chutney into a serving bowl.  Serve at room temperature or chilled.  The chutney can be prepared 24 hours in advance and stored covered in the refrigerator.
