Cranberry Sauce – Make Ahead and Freeze for Christmas No2

I do love Cranberry Sauce, but not the stuff in jars.  It’s cheaper and much nicer to make your own in advance.  The house permeates with Christmas smells, and it’s great to make for presents too.

Cranberry Sauce

450g  fresh or frozen cranberries

225g granulated sugar
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 orange
50ml  Port
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
Large pinch of ground allspice
Large pinch of ground cinnamon

Here’s how to make it……

  • Measure all the ingredients into a shallow AGA Casserole.
  • Bring to the boil and place into the Simmering Oven with the lid on for 1 hour. Don’t worry if it looks a bit runny, it thickens when it cools.

    Cooks Note

    Make ahead and freeze, defrost on Christmas Eve and just warm through in the AGA Simmering Oven in an oven proof serving dish covered in cling film. Yes, cling film.
