Cranberry Recipes

Although cranberry sauce is the first thing that comes to mind, cranberries are actually a lot more versatile than we give them credit for. Delia rustles up some fabulous recipes for confits, chutneys, sauces and jellies, plus a one-crust pie with more than a little American influence!

Cranberry Queen of PuddingsServes 6-8

Cranberry Queen of Puddings

When Delia's first Christmas book was published, the shops sold out of cranberries, and she was given the title Cranberry Queen by the press!

 
 
Spiced Cranberry Muffins with Frosted CranberriesMakes 6 large muffins

Spiced Cranberry Muffins with Frosted Cranberries

I just couldn’t stop eating these when we tested them, so for me this is another reason to look forward to the Christmas season. They are great at any time, but would be especially good for a celebratory breakfast on Christmas morning.

 
 
A Confit of Cranberries for serving with Game or DuckServes 4

A Confit of Cranberries for serving with Game or Duck

The title says it all and this jewel-like confit is the perfect foil for the richness of game or duck - you could also serve it with cheeses and cold cuts at Christmas as a change from your usual chutney.

 
 
Spiced Cranberry and Claret JellyMakes about one 17½ fl oz (500 ml) preserving jar

Spiced Cranberry and Claret Jelly

Subtly spiced, this wonderful jelly will give you a taste of Christmas all year round with roast meats, game, cheese or pate.

 
 
Spiced Cranberry ChutneyMakes 2 x 1 lb (350 ml) capacity jars

Spiced Cranberry Chutney

Make this a month before Christmas so that the flavours can mature: brilliant with cheeses and cold meats.

 
 
Home-made Christmas Mincemeat with CranberriesMakes 6 lb (2.75 kg)

Home-made Christmas Mincemeat with Cranberries

Surprisingly easy to make, this lovely mincemeat is bound to become a Christmas favourite. The addition of cranberries adds colour and flavour to a classic preserve that can be adapted easily for vegetarians.

 
 
Roast Goose with Forcemeat and Spiced Cranberry and Apple StuffingServes 6-8

Roast Goose with Forcemeat and Spiced Cranberry and Apple Stuffing

Goose is a rich meat, so needs acidity to cut through this - which is why this lovely apple and cranberry stuffing and glaze are such a success! A wonderful alternative to turkey at Christmas!

 
 
Cranberry and Onion ConfitServes 8-12

Cranberry and Onion Confit

A confit, as the name suggests, is a kind of sauce reduced to a concentrated, jam-like consistency. This one is a good accompaniment for all kinds of things at Christmas, as it keeps well in the fridge for four weeks.

 
 
Brown and Wild Rice Salad with Dried CranberriesServes 12 as part of the buffet

Brown and Wild Rice Salad with Dried Cranberries

Good old rice salad is an absolute must at a buffet party. This one, made with wild rice, looks very pretty with the jewelled colours of the dried cranberries and nuts.

 
 
Rillettes of Duck with Confit of CranberriesServes 6 as a starter

Rillettes of Duck with Confit of Cranberries

This is one of my favourite starters: a terrine of tiny shreds of tender, succulent duck melded together like a pâté, then served with the dazzling depth of colour and sharpness of a confit of cranberries to counteract the richness.
