Cranberry sauce recipe

A few years ago I stumbled on the Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Christmas show that aired on BBC. The ease at which he whipped up the entire meal, I felt inspired. Silly me.

I attempted several of the dishes he created. One of the most memorable was the Homemade Caramelized Cranberry sauce. A few days before, I cooked this recipe up. It was fairly simple so it seemed.


3/4 cup of sugar
2 cup fresh cranberries
2 apples
zest and juice of 1 orange
1 oz port
2 star anise
4 cardamon pods


Place sugar, star anise and cardamon in a heavy-bottom skillet and caramelize. Add the cranberries and cook until they start to blister and pop. Meanwhile, core, peel and thinly slice 2 apples. Add to pan once the cranberries blister. Deglaze with port and add orange zest and juice.

Cook for 5 to 10 minutes to thicken.
Cool and refrigerate until needed.
Can be made 3-4 days in advance. Serve cold or room temperature.
Prep Time: 5 mins, Total Time: 15 – 20 mins
