  1. Add your cranberries, caster sugar, water, orange zest, orange juice and cinnamon to your jam pan and bring to the boil.

  2. Boil for around 5-10 minutes. At some point your cranberries should start to open and pop. Once they start doing this give them a mash with your wooden spoon to help release some of the pectin inside.

  3. Lower the heat and stir in the port. Heat for a further 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens.

  4. Remove from the heat and ladle in to freshly sterilised jars.

  5. It's best to eat this straight away but it should last in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.
