Spicy cranberry sauce

Why buy cranberry sauce when it's so easy to make your own?

The sour-tart flavour of the cranberries paired with the sugar and spices make this sauce an ideal accompaniment for Christmas turkey.

Making your own cranberry sauce is so easy you’ll never consider buying store bought sauce again. What’s even better is that you can make this up to a week in advance, leaving you plenty of time to deal with other stuff on turkey day.
