  • 200g of cranberries
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 tbsp of honey
  • Half a small wine glass of creme de cassis
  • Chopped mint
  • For the nest
  • 1 pack of filo pastry
  • 20g of melted butter

Cranberry sauce is a Christmas classic, but it's definitely in need of a bit of an update.

What's that I hear you shout? If it ain't broke, don't fix it?

Well, you'll just have to trust us when we say this is a new twist that you need to try – enjoy!


Step 1

For the cranberry sauce place all the ingredients into a saucepan and boil on a high heat for 1-2 minutes.

Step 2

Reduce the heat to a medium and allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Take it off the heat and allow it to cool. Store in the fridge and use as needed. If you leave the cranberry sauce covered and in the fridge for a couple of days the flavours will really infuse.

Step 3

For the filo baskets. Cut the filo pastry into squares and brush with the melted butter. Criss-cross the squares into a muffin or bun tin and bake at 180C for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Fill the filo baskets with the cranberry sauce, but be sure to remove the spices first!
