Homemade Low Sugar Cranberry Sauce with Red Wine Vinegar

I've always wanted to do this but never got around to doing so. But recently I found some whole cranberries in the supermarket chilled section and that's the freshest form I can find here and they weren't too expensive. Obviously, I bought a bag and here we are, making the very first homemade cranberry sauce in my life 😀

The ingredients:

340g fresh cranberries
200ml water
100g brown sugar
1 table spoon red wine vinegar
Zest of 1 lemon


Mix water and the sugar a small saucepan, bring to a boil. Then add the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer on the lowest heat, stirring occasionally, till all the cranberries have popped and the sauce has thicken. The whole process took about 30 minutes.

Yes it was that simple, and I've filled 3 jars (sterilised with hot water)! Once the sauce is completely cooled, keep it in the fridge.

I've used just about half the amount of sugar of what most recipes called for, but it really is sweet enough. As I like my cranberry sauce a little on the citrusy side, the red wine vinegar and the lemon zest did a great job to achieve that.

Now one Christmas condiment is sorted, and we're freezing 1 jar to save for Chinese New Year when we'll probably be having duck 😋
