Ingredients

  • 50ml tawny port
  • ½ tsp fresh ginger, finely grated, plus extra (optional)
  • Grated zest and juice of ½ orange
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 50g caster sugar, plus extra (optional)
  • 375g cranberries

Method

  1. Put the port, ginger, orange zest and juice, cinnamon stick and sugar into a pan and gently heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Add the cranberries and simmer gently for 8-10 minutes until they begin to burst and the sauce starts to thicken. Add more sugar or spice to taste, then set aside and allow to cool completely before serving.
