Cranberry, Orange and Ginger Sauce

This is a twist on regular cranberries sauce for something different on Christmas Day. This sauce goes well with Nut Loaf and faux meats. Original recipe from Animals Australia. If you have trouble finding cranberries or red currents (or just want a short cut) you can substitute store bought cranberry sauce for the cranberries and sugar and just whisk in with other ingredients.

Cranberry, Orange and Ginger Sauce


3/4 cup/150g castor sugar
1/2 cup of orange juice
Zest of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger
2 cups of fresh cranberries
Pinch of salt


Place the cranberries, orange juice and ginger in a pan and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Give the berries a mash and add the sugar, zest and salt.
Cook gently until all the sugar is completely dissolved.
The sauce will thicken up as it cools slightly.
Once thickened, serve.
