It's never a Christmas Day dinner without a Cranberry Sauce. It's one of the first sauces that goes on the plate in our family

This recipe can be made well in advance so your Christmas Day cooking schedule becomes less hectic


  • 100g light brown sugar
  • 100ml freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 250g fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 orange, finely grated zest
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon


    In a large saucepan, add the sugar and freshly squeezed orange juice and bring to the boil, giving a stir until the sugar has dissolved

    Add in the cranberries, orange zest and cinnamon and simmer until the cranberries are soft and tender but they still hold their shape, we don’t want mushy sauce

    Remove from the heat and let cool at which point it’s ready to be popped into the fridge until needed. This sauce will last a good few days

    Remove from the fridge a few hours before service so that the sauce can loosen a bit because it thickens when cold
