Instant cranberry sauce by Rebecca (Christmas 2019)


Never buy a jar again. This takes no time, has nothing nasty in it (apart from sugar) and tastes much lovelier.


  • 100g light muscovado sugar
  • 100ml orange juice
  • 250g fresh or frozen cranberries


  1. Bring the juice and sugar to a boil. Add a splash of port if you like.
  2. Tip in the cranberries and simmer till soft but still with some shape – around five minutes for frozen or eight minutes for fresh.
  3. Pour into a jar and leave to cool.
  4. Will keep for a month in the fridge. Freezes well too.
