10 minutes till serving Christmas dinner and I find a pack of fresh cranberries in the fridge.... This is THE rescue recipe. All done in time for the meal - and in fact the juniper berries and port make a very flavoursome version of the classic cranberry sauce. I might leave it to the last minute next time!
