Cranberries don’t look edible, do they? They are like some winter berries picked off a garden shrub in the corner, just oversized. They are utterly disgusting raw (trust me – I’ve tried), delishhh dried and they make a fantastic sauce to go with your turkey.
The sauce is unbelievably easy to make and a lovely addition to Christmas dinner. It is great with turkey, goose, duck and game and is also marvellous to serve alongside baked brie or camembert.
It can be made well ahead of time as it stores well in the fridge. If you prefer it a little tarter, reduce the amount of sugar.
The recipe is from BBC Good Food, slightly modified by the addition of spices – it makes it smell and taste this little bit more Christmassy.
