A jar of home-made cranberry sauce mixed with tinned redcurrants - or fresh, if you are lucky enough to find them - is a scrumptious sauce to use on the big day but it also makes for a good present to use with the inevitable Christmas leftovers. It's tasty with turkey, chicken, duck and ham.
|250 g||Dried cranberries (Main)|
|100 g||Brown sugar|
|100 g||Redcurrants, if tinned they will need to be drained, or use fresh (Main)|
