Redder Than Red Cranberry Sauce

Total Time:
35 min
Prep:
5 min
Cook:
30 min

Yield:
5 fluid ounces
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag fresh cranberries
  • 7 ounces caster sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cherry brandy
  • 4 fluid ounces water
  • Lemon juice, optional
Directions

Place all the ingredients in a pan and cook until the liquids have reduced to a thick cranberry sauce.

The pectin-rich nature of the fruit means that it solidifies briskly as it cools, so take the pan off the heat to stop it from cooking and reducing when you still think there's too much liquid. Once the berries have burst, which should be after about 10 minutes, it should be ready. Taste to test whether the sauce needs more sugar (if you find it too sweet just add some lemon juice).
