Calendar Girls Curvaceous Cranberry and Kumquat Sauce With Port
35 mins (prep 5, cooking 30)
7 ingredients
4-6 servings
I don't know if any of the Calendar Girls actually make this sauce, but it was published in the Woman's Institute Christmas Cookbook, so it is possible that they may have made it! This is my own recipe based on that WI recipe - vibrant, curvaceous and colourful plump fresh cranberries cooked with fresh kumquats, port and orange juice - then throw in a cinnamon stick just for good measure! If you are making this for children or those who don't drink alcohol, just leave out the port and add extra orange juice. This sauce will sit quite happily in the fridge - once made - for up to a week; it can also be frozen - just take it out the night before you need to serve it, and thaw it overnight, then gently reheat on the day.
