Cranberry Sauce

This makes a subtly spicy cranberry sauce, with a little added port for some festive cheer. I made a couple of batches of this last week which are sitting happily in the freezer, waiting for the big day. Vastly superior to the ready-made version.

Put 500g fresh cranberries in a small saucepan along with 100g golden caster sugar, 100ml water, 100ml port, zest of 1 orange, 2 cloves and 1 star anise. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently until the cranberries have popped and the sauce has thickened. Cool and serve.

Serves 6.
