Cranberry and Orange Sauce
15th December 2010
Cranberry sauce adds a cheerful deep red hue to the festive table and goes well with turkey, ham, cheese and my Christmas nut loaf recipe. Cranberries are a rich source of powerful, immune-enhancing antioxidants, which help to protect against heart disease. Look for the darker red berries – they contain higher level of antioxidants than their paler counterparts.
8oz/225 grams fresh or frozen cranberries (thawed)
|Cranberry and orange sauce adds a tang to Christmas|
juice and zest of 1 orange
1 dessertspoon of molasses
Place all of the ingredients in a pan and slowly bring to the boil. Stir the mixture, lower the heat to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes to make a thick sauce. Serve warm or cold. It keeps well in a covered container in the fridge.
Serve with turkey on the big day and use as you would a chutney with your Boxing Day dishes.
