100g light muscovado sugar
6 tbsp port
2 cardamon pods

  1. Place all ingredients in a pan and simmer for 10 minutes until the sauce thickens and the cranberries start to burst.
  2. Take off the heat, and allow to cool to room temperature.
  3. Store in the fridge in a clean glass jar, or freeze for up to 2 months.
