Cranberry Sauce With Port & Cinnamon

My X-mas table isn’t complete without a homemade cranberry sauce, which can be made well ahead of time to keep you stress-free on Xmas day!!

Fresh cranberry sauce takes JUST 20 MINUTES to make with ONLY 7 BASIC INGREDIENTS!!  It tastes so much better than the store-bought stuff… so why not give it a go this year??  A combination of fresh (or frozen) cranberries, port, sugar, orange, cinnamon, balsamic vinegar and black pepper gives the perfect tangy, zesty, spiced sauce to go with your turkey!

  • 125g Caster Sugar
  • 80ml Port
  • 300g Cranberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon powder @ramanspiceuk
  • 1 Orange (both the juice and zest)
  • 1/4 tsp Black pepper


  1. In a small saucepan on medium-high heat, add the port and sugar and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the cranberries, balsamic vinegar, cinnamon, orange juice, orange zest and pepper.
  3. Cook for about 5 minutes for fresh, 10 minutes for frozen. The cranberries should be soft but still hold their shape slightly, and the sauce will thicken as it cools.
  4. Store in a tight air jar in the fridge for up to 10 days
