  1. Put the cranberries in a heavy saucepan and add the port. Bring to a boil, cover, then simmer gently for 10-15 minutes, or until they start to soften and pop. Remove from the heat and mash with the back of a spoon to the desired consistency.
  2. Stir in the sugar a little at a time, tasting as you go, until it has all dissolved and the sauce is sweet but still tart. Serve with roast turkey or chicken.
  • Use water or fresh orange juice instead of the alcohol.
