I love Cranberry Sauce, it is an essential part of the Christmas meal and no Christmas sandwich is complete without it – well for me anyway.
While there are some delicious shop bought varieties available, I like to make my own, it takes minutes and the finished result is ridiculously satisfying.
250g/9oz Fresh or frozen Cranberries
85g/3oz Demerara Sugar
100ml/3 ½ oz Pomegranate Juice
Grated zest of one orange or 2 clementines
½ teaspoon each Cinnamon, Nutmeg & Allspice
Place all of the ingredients in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, simmer until the berries start popping and turn into a runny sauce. Taste the sauce, if you find it a little bitter simply add more sugar.
Leave to cool before serving. Alternatively store in a sterilised jar in a cool dry place until ready for use. Once opened store in the fridge.
