‘Tis the season to be jolly, as they say. ‘Tis also the season to make your own simple additions for you Christmas dinner and there’s nothing more simple then your own, homemade, cranberry sauce, using only 4 ingredients.
150g Soft brown sugar
45ml Ruby port
Grated zest and juice of one orange
1. Tip all of your ingredients into a saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes until thick.
2. Taste (be warned, it’s VERY hot, so allow it to cool on the spoon for a few seconds before you try it) and adjust the sugar content to your own personal taste.
3. Pour into sterilised jars, seal and allow to cool before placing in the fridge.
4. This will easily keep for a couple of weeks before the ‘big day’ on 25th.
I like mine sharp, so keep the sugar content low. You may wish to add more, depending on your own personal preference.
