Cranberry and Port Sauce | Celia's Saucer

Christmas will be held at my house this year. Might I have let myself in for trouble? Probably. Might there be A LOT of cooking to do? Definitely.

I've spent the last few days wondering how I can prepare ahead for the hoard and, taking first steps first, set to researching an easy cranberry sauce recipe, which is possibly along one of the most important things on the menu, alongside devils on horseback and beetroot chutney for cold Boxing Day sausages and cheese.

I was surprised at how very easy it was and even made the decision to added finely grated orange zest and to infuse it with a cinnamon stick and star anise.

The results were a sauce-to-suck-your-cheeks-in-at and a warming glow that finished with a clean swipe across the palate.

What will you be making ahead of the festive season? And above all, what advice can you give a first time Christmas host? I have a feeling I'll be needing all the help I can get.
