CRANBERRY SAUCE WITH PORT & CINNAMON

Prep
20 minutes
Total
20 minutes

My X’mas table just isn’t complete without a homemade cranberry sauce which can be made well ahead of time to keep you stress free on Xmas day!!


Fresh cranberry sauce which takes JUST 20 MINUTES to make with ONLY 7 BASIC INGREDIENTS!!  It tastes so much better than the store bought stuff… so why not give it a go this year??  A combination of fresh (or frozen) cranberries, port, sugar, orange, cinnamon, balsamic vinegar and black pepper gives the perfect tangy, zesty, spiced sauce to go with your turkey! 

  1. In a small saucepan on medium high heat add the port and sugar and bring to the boil
  2. Add the cranberries, balsamic vinegar, cinnamon, orange juice, orange zest and pepper
  3. Cook for about 5 minutes for fresh, 10 minutes for frozen, the cranberries should be soft, but still  holding their shape slightly, the sauce will thicken as it cools
  4. Store in an air tight jar in the fridge for up to 10 days
