Quick and Easy Cranberry Sauce

Making your own Cranberry Sauce with fresh cranberries is simple and tastes so much better than anything you can buy, why not give it a try?  I made the sauce in my Optimum ThermoCook, but you can use a food processor or leave the cranberries whole, it’s a really adaptable recipe.

      Thanks Choclette, it seemed so obvious that this would work in the Thermocook, everything in the one ‘pot’!

    I never thought about making this! Not usually a fan but I always “try” it for Christmas. But maybe a homemade version would be the answer xx
