Once you've tasted homemade cranberry sauce, you'll never buy shop bought again. I love to make this sauce on Christmas eve - it makes the kitchen smell really Christmassy. It's so easy to make too.
Easy cranberry sauce
Makes enough for 8-10 servings
300g ish of cranberries, I always use frozen
100g golden caster sugar (normal caster sugar will also work fine)
100ml orange juice
Put all the ingredients in a pan and bring to the boil.
Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10-12 minutes or until the cranberries are mostly burst and soft when pressed with a fork. Leave to cool in the pan for 20 minutes or so, and it will thicken.
Put the sauce into a dish or sterilised jar; it will keep in the fridge for a couple of days if you like to get ahead.
I'd love to know if you make your own cranberry sauce at Christmas time. Don't be shy and please leave a comment.
