    I have seen recipes for apple sauce cake so reckon you could do that with cranberry instead?
    Throw some in with apples for an apple and cranberry crumble? or pie?

    I like to open up a chicken breast and stuff it with cranberry sauce and cheese. I then fold it all back together and wrap in parma ham or bacon and cook in the oven.

    I love it in sandwiches like a chutney, warm ciabatta, goats cheese and cranberry sauce. Yum! Also works well with strong cheddar or roast chicken

    Yeh, Brie with bacon, rocket if you have it, and cranberry sauce - My favourite sandwich from Mr S is as above but with sliced pears instead of cranberry. Yum

    make up some raspberry jelly, mix in the cranberry sauce and let it set. Good for lunchboxes if you do it in small tupperware pots

    Brie & cranberry croissants are lovely.
  • Reverbe
    Could you put it in truffles? I was thinking about this as I have 2 huge pots of Cranberry & orange relish I made. We can't afford the posh cheeses or cheese bites we normally eat it with and tho we had 2 packs of cheeses for gifts none had any brie or camembert in.

    It goes nice in porridge but I am getting bored with that now.As mine is thick and sweet and has orange and port in, was also wondering if it would work like a jam?

    Try these - they are yummy! Not quite like normal Brownies but my family wolfed them down.

    Stir it into stuffing next time you make stuffing from a packet mix.

    I tend to use it as I would a chutney or use it in dressings. I also dollop it on any dinners I feel the need to, usually along with a generous helping of mustard

    Use it to baste a strong tasting meat like duck or venison, then grill or bake. Even chicken bits or turkey legs would work.

    How about stiring it into plain yoghurt? If it isn't sweet enough add a little honey too.

    Mix it with apples and make an apple & cranberry pie.

    Anything you would use jam for, you can use cranberry jelly for.
  • Reverbe
    Thanks folks. Some great ideas there. Looking forward to trying some esp as my flatmate broke the seal on a box of cranberries so will have to make some more soon.. lol Won't be trying the stuffing as personally I dont like it but hope it helps someone else.

    I made some to take away with us at Christmas, and stupidly left it in the fridge. I am however enjoying a goodly spoonful with my porridge every morning. I find it very nice indeed.
