Cranberry and Orange Sauce

Cranberry sauce is synonymous with Christmas, and this Cranberry & Orange sauce is super easy to make.

Adapted from The Vegetarian Epicure by Anna Thomas

Fresh cranberries start appearing in grocery stores around mid-November, so snap up a few bags and stash them in the freezer to make sure you have a supply ready for holiday cooking and baking.

Ingredients (serves 6-8) : 

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

Method :

  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.
