• 250 g fresh cranberries
  • zest and juice of 2 oranges
  • 250 ml port
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 3 star anise
  • 3 cardamom pods


  1. 1

    Put all the ingredients in a pan and place over a moderate heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then simmer for 30 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated.

  2. 2

    Cool, then remove the cinnamon and cardamom pods. The star anise look pretty – but don't eat them!


    Get ahead: make up to 3 days ahead; chill.


    Kitchen secret: if you want extra for leftovers, you can easily double the recipe.
