Gin & cranberry relish recipe
Makes: Approximately 2 jars of relish
Cooking time: Up to 45 mins
120ml fresh orange juice
180ml cranberry gin
125g sugar – castor, demerara or light brown. A darker sugar will give you a darker richer relish.
250g of cranberries that have been steeped in gin for 4 weeks. This cranberry gin recipe will show you how to do this.
Zest of one orange
1 x cinnamon stick
2 sterilised jars
1. In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring the orange juice, gin and sugar to a boil, or heat until the sugar has dissolved.
2. Add the steeped cranberries, orange zest, cinnamon and salt, and return to the boil.
3. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer gently for 10 to 12 minutes, until most of the cranberries have burst open and the mixture has thickened/become jam-like.
4. Allow the mixture to cook, and then spoon into sterilised jars, and keep chilled in the fridge. The relish will usually keep well in the fridge for up to 3 months.
