About this recipe: This sauce will outshine any shop-bought variety. Cranberries are simmered with apples and pears in a well spiced orange juice. It's the perfect sauce to serve at Christmas dinner with roast turkey (or chicken).

Serves: 32 

  • 5 (7.5cm) cinnamon sticks
  • 8 whole allspice berries
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 650g fresh cranberries

  1. Place the cinnamon sticks, allspice berries and cloves onto the centre of a 20cm square piece of cheese cloth. Gather together the edges of the cheese cloth and tie with kitchen twine to secure. Place the pouch into a large saucepan along with the cranberries and orange juice. Bring to the boil over high heat and cook until the berries begin to burst, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in the apples, pears, caster sugar and dark brown soft sugar. Return to the boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer about 25 minutes until the apples and pears are slightly soft. Remove and discard the spice pouch. Scrape the sauce into a bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve cold.
