Accompany a warming roast dinner with our cranberry sauce recipe or use in a brie or turkey sandwich. Whichever way you choose to eat your cranberry sauce, our simple recipe is guaranteed to impress your friends and family.
In a pan add the cranberries, orange juice or cranberry juice, vanilla seeds and pod, orange slices, cloves, star anise, cinnamon sticks, bay leaf and sugar and allow to simmer for 20 minutes or until the cranberries begin to soften.
Using a spoon, remove the spices from the pan and grate 1/2 the nutmeg in to the pan and stir.
Pulse the mixture in a food processor or blender, return the mixture to the heat and boil while stirring for 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat and allow the cranberry sauce to cool completely. This will thicken the sauce. Once cooled, carefully pour the cranberry sauce in to glass jars. Store in the fridge for up to a week.
