Perfect and Simple Cranberry Sauce

2 Jan


This is the first year I have ever made my own cranberry sauce for Christmas dinner and now I’m kind of kicking myself for not trying it sooner! It is a ridiculously easy recipe and tastes absolutely fantastic. It is quick to make and you could even make it a few days in advance and keep it in the fridge until you need it. I had way too much left over because there was only two of us but  I have it in the fridge in a sterilized jar so it will keep for about 2 weeks. You can use it for loads of things such as sandwiches, desserts or savory dishes such as cranberry and goats cheese puff pastry tarts. So delicious!


Perfect and Simple Cranberry Sauce

250g fresh cranberry

1/2 cup orange juice

2/3 cup light brown sugar, more or less to taste

  • Place all the ingredients in a small pan and cook over a medium heat for about 10-15mins, stirring regularly, until the cranberries soften and the sauce thickens.
  • Taste and add more sugar if needed. You can serve it cold or reheat it just before your meal.
