Ingredients

  • Sugar
    0.5 cups (100 g)
  • Fresh orange juice
    1 cup (240 ml)
  • Port (save some for the end)
    0.5 cups (120 ml)
  • Frozen cranberries
    1 packet (400 g)
  • Chopped apple
    1
  • Nutmeg
    1 tsp

Method

  1. Take a saucepan and add your sugar, orange juice and port (leave a little port for the end).

  2. Put this on the stove-top and give it a couple of minutes on the heat until the sugar is fully dissolved.

  3. Next add your cranberries, apple and nutmeg to the saucepan and stir, put this back on the stove and allow it to cook for about 20 minutes on a medium heat, stirring every so often.

  4. Once it has reached a jam like consistency then it is done, take it off the heat.

  5. Now you can add the last splash of port.

  6. You can then choose to leave the cranberries whole or to give the sauce a quick blitz with a hand blender.

  7. Ready to freeze

    Put the mixture into a Labelled sealed freezer bag and squash until flat. Remember if it’s flat it takes up less space in your freezer and defrosts quicker. This makes quite a lot of sauce so you should get enough sauce for 2 large family meals.

  8. Ready to Eat

    Simply defrost, heat until bubbling in a saucepan on the stove top and serve.
    If using a microwave cook for 3 minutes.

    1. I wouldn’t reccomentd dried cranberries as you need the liquid from them. Hope that helps

  1. Hi,
    Can fresh cranberries be used as I’m struggling to find frozen in the supermarkets near me.
    If not where do you normally get yours?
    Thanks

    1. Yes fresh cranberries will work just as well. You can get fresh cranberries from most supermarkets and fruit and veg shops

    1. it will keep for 2-3 weeks in a jar in the fridge. Best to freeze if you are keeping it for Christmas

  2. Just made this cranberry sauce this evening to freeze in preparation for Christmas Day. I’ve tasted it already and it’s delicious. Thank you Batch Lady !!!
