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!
An easy, unctuous and very Christmassy do-ahead dessert. You can use a cook's blow torch for the brulee but the caramel won't be as crunchy as putting it under the grill.
I always like to serve a jelly at Christmas time because when there is a lot of rich food around it is so nice to have something cool, light and refreshing at the end of a meal.
This is Delia's choice for serving with the Christmas turkey - make it ahead and enjoy the combination of sweet and sharp flavours.
This is just about the easiest terrine in the world to make because you can buy the venison and the pork ready minced. The result is a lovely, rough country pâté and the sharpness of the cranberries is the perfect accompaniment.
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.
