Cranberry & Sloe Gin Sauce Category: Recipes

The second part of my pre-Christmas cooking started yesterday with Cranberry & Sloe Gin Sauce – a recipe I found on The Cottage Smallholder.

You’ll need:

  • 300g cranberries
  • 4 clementines – squeezed with some pulp
  • 120g granulated white sugar
  • 25ml Sloe Gin

How to Do It

  1. Wash the cranberries thoroughly – taking out any soft fruit
  2. Wash the clementines and then squeeze the juice out of them (i did this by hand quite easily)
  3. Put the cranberries in a large pan together with the sugar and clementine juice and pulp – mix around
  4. Turn the heat on under the pan to allow the mixture to come up to a simmer then taste for sweetness, adding extra sugar if you desire
  5. Pop the lid on the pan and let it simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes until all berries have burst and it resembles a jam type consistency
  6. Take off the heat and stir in the sloe gin
  7. Decant into warm sterilised jars


Ps: Just wanted to say a quick hello to anyone popping by here after following the C4 food website link :)

Thanks for the mention Claire. Much appreciated. I found some of this lurking in the fridge from this time last year and devoured it in a Brie sandwich.


Claire Says:

You’re welcome :)

And its good to know it can last upto 12 months (if there is any left!)

This sounds delicous Claire – how are you planning on using it (apart from in a Brie sandwich?!)


Claire Says:

Ginger, I made two pots so hopefully we’ll use one on Christmas day with the turkey & the rest on sandwiches.

This sounds really good, I made sloe gin last year and still have some in the cupboard. This sauce sounds like it would be good over the top of a home made pate.

Lovely blog btw, I love cake decorating too.
