Aldi has cranberries at 99p for 200g, so why not make your own sauce this year? Surprisingly, the end product still has that seemingly artificial-pink tinge, but it does taste much better than all but the highest-end bought stuff, and is really easy!
(makes 1 jar)
4 tbsp brown sugar
- With a sharp knife, cut a sliver of the skin off the lemon (avoid white pith as much as possible)
- Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer over a medium heat.
- Heat, stirring occasionally, until most of the berries have burst and the sauce is starting to thicken (10-12 minutes)
- Pull out the piece of lemon zest and let the sauce cool – zest some more of the citrus skin on top.
