One of my favourites parts of Christmas is, of course, the food.
And I'm not sure Christmas Lunch would be the same without homemade bread sauce, cranberry sauce and Grandad's stuffing. We have never used shop bought cranberry sauce with our turkey, instead preferring to make heaps of our own. Especially good with a traditional Christmas fare but also on Boxing Day too, the tartness of the cranberries perfectly offsetting a turkey and stuffing leftover sandwich.
300g fresh cranberries
2 Clementines, rind and juice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
80g caster sugar
1 cinnamon stick
2 tablespoons port
Putting it all Together
Peel the rind and squeeze the juice from the clementines into a pan.
Add all the other ingredients in to the pan and set to a low heat, simmering for 5 minutes until the cranberries start to burst. Cook until the liquid has burned off and transfer to a jar to cool.
Once cooled serve as a perfect accompaniment for your Christmas Dinner.
