If you haven’t already done so, today is a good day to make your cranberry sauce. It is really easy, and it tastes better than the gelatinous goo you get from a jar.
Really Simple Cranberry Sauce
Skill level: beginner
Preparation time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins
- 100g light muscovado sugar
- 100ml orange juice , fresh or from a carton
- 250g pack fresh or frozen cranberries
Tip the sugar and orange juice into a pan, then bring to the boil. Stir in the cranberries, then simmer until tender but still holding their shape – this will take about 5 mins if using fresh cranberries or 8-10 mins if using frozen. The sauce will thicken as it cools. Will keep in the fridge for 1 week. On the day, bring to room temperature before serving.
Tip: dissolve the sugar in the orange juice before boiling, this will prevent the sugar from crystallizing in the orange juice.
