Yes, I know it’s not even December yet, but here’s the first of my Christmas recipe posts. After all, the key to a stress free day is all in the preparation. Ditch the shop brought cranberry sauce this year and give my port and orange version a go.
I can not tell you how simple this cranberry sauce is to make – 20 minutes tops, one pan and four ingredients. The best bit is, that you can freeze this for up to 6 weeks or keep in the fridge sealed for a week so you can make it well ahead of time. This also makes it perfect for an easy homemade Christmas gift.
The aromas that fill your kitchen when you make this are utterly divine. It even made this scrooge feel a bit festive! The port balances the sharpness of the orange and cranberry amazingly well leaving you with a tangy and sweet cranberry sauce that will compliment any Christmas table.
In the run up to Christmas I will be putting together lots of festive dishes, if you can’t wait though, then why not check out my Roast Potatoes for a fantastic side.
