Mulled cranberry & apple sauce
- Preparation and cooking time
- plus infusing
- Serves 8
Make this spiced cranberry sauce up to four days ahead for a stress-free Christmas. It's delicious spooned over turkey or ham
- STEP 1
Bring the wine to a gentle simmer with the cinnamon, orange juice and rind, cloves, ginger and star anise. Once steaming, remove from the heat and leave to infuse for 30 mins.
- STEP 2
Strain the wine into another pan, discarding the aromatics, and add the apple, cranberries and sugar. Bring to a simmer. Bubble for 10-15 mins until the berries start to burst, and the apple is soft. The sauce will thicken as it cools – you can add a splash more orange juice or water to loosen, if you like. Make ahead and freeze, or keep in the fridge for up to four days. Bring to room temperature to serve.
