There's nothing better than dipping turkey into some homemade cranberry sauce! Chef Clodagh McKenna's cranberry sauce with spices is something unique but still close to the same traditional red sauce we all love.



  • Juice and zest of one orange
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 pound fresh cranberries
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 2 inches fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1 chili, split and de-seeded
  • 1 cinnamon stick


  1. Place the sugar, orange juice & zest and water in a saucepan and slowly bring to a boil, once the sugar has dissolved lower the heat.
  2. Stick the cloves into the fresh ginger and place in the saucepan and follow with the cranberries, cinnamon stick and chili. Leave to simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. When the cranberries have popped the sauce is ready.
