  • 50g light muscovado sugar
  • 100g orange shred marmalade


  1. Tip the cranberries into a medium pan over a low heat with the orange juice, sugar and marmalade, and stir until the sugar and marmalade melt and the mixture starts to bubble. Cook for 3-5 mins, depending on whether the cranberries are fresh or frozen, as the frozen ones will soften more quickly. They need to be tender but still hold their shape, so try to squash one to see if it is soft enough. The sauce will thicken as it cools, but this has a looser texture than shop-bought. Will keep for 1 week in the fridge.

Quick and easy to make but I added some mixed spice and brandy to add some additional flavour because I think otherwise it could be a tad bland? Great idea to add marmalade though
