Cranberry Sauce with Port

Cranberry Sauce with Port

Christmas dinner isn't complete without cranberry sauce!
Prep time: 5 MinCook time: 18 MinTotal time: 23 Min

Ingredients

  • 350g pack fresh cranberries - washed and drained
  • 130g caster sugar
  • 175ml port
  • 4 inches of cinnamon stick
  • finely grated zest and juice of half an orange

Instructions

  1. Get a medium sized saucepan and throw in the cranberries along with the sugar.
  2. Heat it up a bit then add the port, orange zest and juice along with the cinnamon stick.
  3. Simmer gently, stirring now and then very carefully so you don't break off bits of cinnamon stick.
  4. The cranberries will start to break open and release their lovely juice.
  5. Once this happens keep simmering until it has reduced down a bit and the sauce looks glossy and a bit jammy.
  6. Remove the cinnamon stick and discard. 
  7. Have a taste to see if you need more sugar - although my guess is you won't need to add any more.

Notes:

Don't forget this can be made a week or two before Christmas, stored in a sterilised jar in the fridge.

On Christmas day, just remove it from the fridge in the morning so it comes to room temperature before serving with the dinner.
