This is the first year that I have never cooked turkey for Christmas! It felt weird I have to admit, but I did cook Orange & Rosemary Duck and Christmas Pulled Pork and this cranberry and apple sauce that I made went well with both of those dishes. It also goes well, when cold, with cheese and cold meats.
Hubby has suggested I turn the mix into a crumble, which isn’t a bad idea either! And I spooned some over ice-cream for a festive dessert. It’s a really versatile sauce!
- 500g fresh cranberries
- 2 bramley apples, peeled and chopped
- 150g caster sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 50ml apple juice
- 50ml water
- Place all the ingredients into a saucepan and bring to the boil.
- Simmer until the cranberries begin to pop and the apple softens, stirring occasionally.
- Serve warm or cold.
