500 g cranberries, fresh cranberries or frozen ones, thawed
2 bramley apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
150 g golden caster sugar
1 stick cinnamon
This is a simple sauce that goes very well with rich meats like goose and duck. You can make it well in advance, so you don't have to worry about it while you're cooking lunch. Pop some in a sterilised jar as a lovely home-made Christmas gift that's sure to impress.
Place all the ingredients in a wide saucepan and add a splash of water. Put the pan on the heat and bring to the boil. Simmer gently until the cranberries have burst and the apple has softened. Boil down until the mixture thickens slightly, then take off the heat and leave to cool.
If giving as a gift, divide between air-tight sterilised jars (see the how to video below) and give out to all your friends. Once opened, store in the fridge.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
