Cranberry sauce

advent-day-18Oophs! Just found this one lurking in the drafts folder – better late than never! Day 18 and its traditional Christmas day trimmings (centre to left of table mat), Brussels sprouts and bread sauce – originally  a medieval recipe.  We prefer cranberry sauce. This recipe is not too sweet.
