Ingredients

  • 250g fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2 tbsp pomegranate molasses or balsamic vinegar
  • ½ orange, finely zested and juiced
  • 2 tbsp golden caster sugar, plus extra if needed
  • pinch of ground allspice

Method

  • STEP 1

    Tip all the ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer over a low heat. Cook for 10 mins, or until the cranberries have burst and the sauce is thick, glossy and sticky.

  • STEP 2

    If you prefer a sweeter sauce, add a bit more sugar. Leave to cool. Will keep, covered, in the fridge for up to one week or frozen for two months.
