How to Make Your Own Ketchups & Sauces

Sauces and ketchups (catsup) are very similar although, generally, ketchups have a slightly thinner consistency than sauces. Sauces are rubbed through a sieve to give a smooth mixture and then cooked again until they are thick enough not to separate...

    I have just used this recipe for some old cranberries I found in the bottom of my freezer. The spices really come through in this recipe but I also added the fine zest of one orange in the final stages (after sieving) which really enhances the flavour. Truly scrumptious!
    Thank you!

    This recipe sounds delicious! My question is, as i want to give it as presents, how long does it keep and does it need to be stored in a fridge either before or after opening, please?

  3. Val says:

    Store in a cool, dark place before opening. After it has been opened, it is probably best to keep in the fridge. It should last at least 6 months.

    Hi, maybe a silly a question, but is it the fruit or the juice you keep & boil again before putting into jars?? Thank you, Fiona

    Can you substitute granulated sugar for Demerara sugar in the cranberry sauce recipe?


  6. Diane Allen says:

    Have just made a batch. Turned out great. So easy. I did tweak though by not sieving and leaving the cranberries in. Filled five 110gr jars. As I managed to buy some Demerara sugar for a good price in Tesco, I will stick with that.
