  • dried cranberries 400g
  • sumac 1 tbsp
  • orange 1, zested and juiced


  • Step 1

    Bring 500ml of water to the boil, then tip in the dried cranberries. Cook, stirring regularly and topping up the water as needed, for 50 minutes-1 hour until the berries are rehydrated and starting to break down. They should become jammy and the sauce should have a thick, sticky texture.

    Step 2

    Stir in the sumac, orange zest and juice, and ½ tsp of salt. Remove from heat and leave to cool before serving.
