Just Plain Cranberry Sauce: #Recipe

I’ve always been a fan of just plain cranberry sauce. I even liked the store bought sauce as a kid. I’m sure you can remember the tube of the stuff that would slide out of the can onto a serving plate. That was until I discovered homemade, and I never looked back. I’ve made it many...

There we were served a traditional “cream tea” which consisted of scones, clotted cream, jam and, of...
