StiGGy’s Super Cranberry Sauce.

A few days before Christmas Day, I like to whip up a batch of my Cranberry Sauce. I’m actually in the Kitchen now whilst I type this and the smell is amazing so I thought I’d share the recipe with you.

Ingredients –

450g of Cranberries

75g Caster Sugar

x1 Large Orange (Rind & Juice)

1 or 2 Clemetines (optional)

x1 Heap Teaspoon of fresh grated Ginger or half this if using dried Ginger

4 or 5 Cloves

x1 Cinnamon Stick (the one’s you find  in the small jars which are about 4-5cm long)

2-3 Tablespoons of Port

Firstly, peel away the Orange rind with a Potato peeler and cut them into fine shreds.

Place the Cranberries, Orange rind, Orange Juice, Caster Sugar, Cloves, grated Ginger and Cinnamon stick into a Pan & bring up to a simmering point, giving everything a good stir.

When the Cranberries begin to burst, place a lid on the pan & simmer for another 5 mins.

Once finished, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the Port.

Once cool, remove the Cinnamon Stick & Clovers (they can be a bit of a pain to find 🙂 ,pour into a serving dish or jars if storing until a later date.

I usually store mine in Jars in the Fridge but before screwing on the lids, I placed a piece of sliced Clementine on top.

Quick ‘n’ easy and taste’s sooooo good!
