Easy Cranberry and Orange Sauce

Serves 6-8


  • 150g caster sugar
  • 250ml orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  • 350g fresh cranberries


  1. Combine the sugar, orange juice, cinnamon and cloves in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Add the cranberries, return to the boil and stir over a medium heat for about 10 minutes. Use a long-handled spoon and keep an eye on it, as this will bubble and spit.
  3. When most of the cranberries have popped and the sauce has thickened, it’s done.
  4. Pour it into a serving dish or storage container and allow it to cool, then store it in the fridge.
  5. This will keep, covered, for 1 week in the fridge.
