When I was growing up I thought adding sweet things to savoury food was the weirdest idea and would never touch a pineapple pizza. Now that has changed completely and I especially love adding cranberry sauce to a roast dinner! I added orange zest to the recipe because it is such a festive flavour and works perfectly with the sharpness of the cranberries.

100ml cold water

1.5 – 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • Add the cranberries, water and orange zest to a pan over a medium heat
  • Cook for approximately 10 minutes until the cranberries have all popped open and you are left with a thick sauce
  • Remove the pan from the heat then stir in the salt and 1.5 tbsp of the maple syrup (add the rest if you want a sweeter sauce)
  • Leave the sauce to cool before storing in the fridge
