2 small glass jars or empty, cleaned cans, approx. 12 oz each
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
⅛ tsp ground nutmeg
Pinch of ground cloves
1 cup white sugar
1 cup sweet apple cider
6 sheets gelatin or 1 pouch (0.3 oz) unflavoured gelatin
Cooking time 15 min Portions 2 cans
Cranberry sauce is part of our culinary tradition. You would be surprised how quickly its made with results far tastier and more nutritious than store-bought versions. For putting your taste buds in a Holiday mood, nothing surpasses comforting, slowly-infused spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
In a pot, bring all the ingredients to a boil except gelatin. Let simmer over medium-high heat, stirring regularly, until cranberries burst and sauce thickens. Remove from heat.
Strain sauce or use a food mill to remove skins and cranberry pits. Add the gelatin previously bloomed in water (according to package directions) and mix well. Pour mixture into an empty, clean can or small glass jars. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 12 hours.
Run a knife blade between the can and the jelly. Unmould and serve.
If the sauce seems too thick, thin it with a dash of water. If you’re having difficulty unmoulding the jelly, simply bore a small hole in the bottom of the can using a can opener. A burst of air should break the vacuum effect and help unmould the jelly easily without removing the whole bottom.
Cranberries are small fruits naturally rich in pectin. Your sauce will set even if you don’t add gelatin. However, you will find it harder to shape as desired or to unmould it as an easy-to-slice log.
