Place sugar, juice, star anise, salt and port into Thermo bowl and cook 10 min/70ºC/speed 2. Leave in bowl 10 minutes to infuse. Remove star anise.
Add cranberries and cook 10 min/90ºC/Reverse/speed 1.
Cook 10 min/100ºC/Reverse/speed 1 with steaming basket in place of MC to prevent spatter. The mixture should be sticky.
Add orange zest and stir through. Keep in sterilised airtight jars in fridge until the big day…the best sauce to have with Turkey or ham. Perfect when teamed in sandwiches with sliced ham, cream cheese and sprouts.
Enjoy…well I know you’re going to. It is amazing.
