Method

Squeeze 1 clementine and put the juice in a pan with the cranberries, sugar and port. Cook for 5 mins until the cranberries start to soften and burst. Tear the other clementine into segments (remove the membrane if you have time) and cook along with the cranberries for 2 mins more. Store in fridge, or freeze for up to 2 months.

I forgot to say, I added a star anise, also I didn't have clementines so used mandarins. I froze it for a couple of weeks beforehand and it was still fab!

We loved this, it is far superior to the stuff in the jar. I would not buy the other again.

I've tried almost every type of cranberry sauce and this is by far my favourite. I've always made it fresh, 2 days in advance but in an effort to be super-organized this year, I'm going to make it ahead and freeze it in. Fingers crossed it remains as delicious after a few weeks in the freezer. ..

I made this on Xmas eve and it was delicious with our turkey. Very easy to make, it had the perfect blend of sweet and sharp. It was great with cheese too on Boxing Day. A keeper!

I made it to go with CHRISTMAS dinner. It went beautifully with both the turkey and the nut roast for the vegetarians. I did put in the juice of two clementines by mistake but it worked very well indeed.

Made this in advance on Christmas Eve for dinner on Christmas Day. It was lovely, I added two tablespoons of red currant jelly. Would certainly make it again. Don't think I would buy another jar of cranberry sauce, its so easy to make.

This is a solid recipe, rave reviews for this cranberry sauce recipe. I will never buy another jar/can of cranberry sauce ever again. Thank you!

This is by far the best recipe for Cranberry Sauce I've ever made. Because of the ingredients I did not limit it to having it with meats etc so I added it as a sauce to accompany desserts and it is divine over ice-cream!! Additionally you may have heard of chilli chocolate, just add a little chilli powder whilst cooking the sauce to give it a hint of a kick, again lovely with meats and desserts alike!!

Made this last Christmas and it really was lovely. It was so easy to make and tasted so good I will be making again this year (but more of it).

The recipe says you can keep this in the freezer for 2 months but long can you keep this in the fridge?

Really great, finished the first batch up, it's been used on leftover ham, pate etc and going to make a second batch now.

I love this as I'm allergic to oranges but not clementines, never thought I could eat cranberry sauce until I saw this recipe!

Made this for the first time this year-wow! Doubled the recipe & I'm glad I did as it was so popular. Wonderful.

this is simple but oh so lovely. Ive made several jars (and of course one for me) while the cranberries were on special offer. I am going to give these as presents on christmas eve, decorated with dried orange and cinnamon sticks :-)

Tried this for the first time this Christmas. The family loved it. Will never buy ready made cranberry sauce again.

I have tried all sorts of variations of cranberry sauce and this is my absolute favourite not too sweet also makes a lovely accompaniment to chicken liver pate

This is a brilliant recipe. I have made this for the past 2 years and give jars to friends as a Christmas gift. They like it so much, they start being nice to me as early as July to ensure they get some!! The taste is sensational and it creates a lovely Christmas smell in the house when making it! Try it, you'll never buy it at the supermarket again!
