WEEK 5 – CRANBERRY SAUCE

So we’re now halfway through our 10 Weeks of Christmas Recipes series! Which means Christmas is just round the corner… And it’s the perfect time to make your cranberry sauce ready to serve up with your turkey on Christmas day.

So here’s how you do it. It takes about 15 minutes of prep and then another 30ish minutes to cook, and then you can either pop it in jars in the cupboard or in bags straight into the freezer. We kept some out to put on top of ice cream though, it’s deeeelish and just festive enough to get you in the mood for Christmas shopping.

  2. Gently heat the orange juice and sugar in a pan, add spices and stir gently until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add the cranberries, pears, port & orange zest.
  4. Continue to stir occasionally, gently simmering until the cranberries collapse. Then season with salt & pepper.
  5. Remove the cinnamon and star anise.
  6. Pour your sauce into your sterilised jars and store in a cool, dark place, or simple ladle into bags and freeze once cooled.
