Make your own Spiced Cranberry Sauce

There’s something very rewarding about making your own cranberry sauce for Christmas – and giving it as a gift is even more rewarding.

Here’s how we make ours.


200g cranberries
100g light muscovado sugar
6 tbsp port
2 cardamon pods
3 cloves
2 cinnamon stick
½ tsp nutmeg


  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.
