This is a super-easy, chuck it in a pot and let it do its thing kind of a cranberry sauce. Perfect if you’re super busy in the run-up to the festive period, but still want something delicious in your turkey sandwiches.


500g cranberries
100ml port
3 sprigs rosemary
1 tbsp orange marmalade
1 tbsp dark brown sugar


Get a medium sized saucepan on the hob at a medium heat, and pour in your cranberries. Add the rosemary, marmalade and sugar on top. Stir through and leave to heat for a minute or two. Pour in the port, stir again.

Cook, stirring every minute or so until most of the cranberries burst, then allow to cool slightly before putting into a sterilised jar.


You can make this using fresh or frozen cranberries. If using frozen it will take a few more minutes as the cranberries defrost and excess water boils off.
