Cranberry & Port Sauce
Rating: (0ratings)


  • 400g frozen cranberries
  • 175g Siúcra caster sugar
  • 2 star anise
  • One orange, peel and juice
  • 100ml Port (Ruby or Tawny work best here)

1. In a saucepan, bring the sugar with the orange juice to the boil and then add the cranberries, star anise, orange peels and port as you reduce to a simmer.

2. Allow to cook down on medium-low for 8-10 minutes until the cranberries soften, pop and thicken the sauce –– note: it will thicken further as it cools. Remove the star anise and orange peels at this point. 

3. Decant into sterilised jars, pop on a lid and allow to cool completely.
