ProWare's Cranberry Apple Sauce

Cranberry Apple Sauce

Cranberry sauce is one of those things that is so easy to make that after you’ve done it once, you’ll never go back to the shop bought kind. It’s one of those one pot wonders where you stick everything into a pan and kapow, it’s done just like that…or maybe not so explosively! However, do feel free to play around with the spices, if you’re not into the dynamic flavour of star anise or simply don’t have it, then just leave it out. I’ve tried this recipe without the apple and it tastes great too, just double check the sweetness and add more sugar if you think it’s necessary.

Cranberry Apple Sauce Prep

This recipe uses one of our stunning Mini Ladles, which have been silver plated in Sheffield and are available to buy on our website. We think it’s the perfect size for serving this sauce and many more, plus it would be a super cute stocking filler this Christmas.
