I've never been a lover of sweet and savoury together. I can't stand ham and pineapple pizza and I leave the fruit out of my Tagine. As for cranberry sauce with a roast...err no thanks. So can you imagine my surprise when hubby returned to our table at ikea with meatballs in gravy with cranberry sauce and that I even swiped extra sauce off his plate!
Strangely in our shop last week, hubby (do you think this is a conspiracy?) put a punnet of cranberries in our trolley. He hasn't tasted one before and said he thought I liked them (I like drinking vodka and cranberry juice)! Well they have sat in the fridge for a week now but tonight I thought I'd try a cranberry sauce to go with pork chops. The crazy thing is, it's the simplest and quickest sauce to make and tastes a million miles from the dodgy jar creations in the supermarket.
Best thing is that Bubba tried it and liked it. Granted its probably not the best thing to give her loads of, as its a lot of sugar. But it got her trying cranberries, a win in my book.
Bring all the ingredients to the boil whilst stirring. Then let it simmer for 10 mins or until the berries are soft. The mixture will thicken. It can be served straight away, stored in the fridge for a few days or frozen (once cool).
