1 tsp of orange zest

What you do:

Put all ingredients into a sauce an and mix well.
Cook over medium heat and bring to a boil.
Boil for about 10 minutes until the cranberries pop. There may be a few light colored ones that don’t pop, but don’t worry. They soften as the sauce cools.

400g green beans

Cook the green beans in boiling, salted water for 3-4 mins, until just tender. Drain and cool under cold running water. This can be done the day before – just keep the beans covered in the fridge.
When you’re ready to eat, heat the butter in a large frying pan until foaming, add the shallots and cook for 4-5 mins, until soft but not coloured. Throw in the beans and toss to coat. Cook for 1-2 mins until heated through, then season.

What you need:

6 large oranges
2 x 135g/5oz packets of jelly

What you do:
Prepare the jelly according to the packet instructions, but using slightly less water so it is a little firmer, then put in the fridge to set. Cut a slice from the stalk end of each orange. Cut out eyes, a nose and a mouth shape using a sharp, pointed knife. Hollow out the oranges using a small sharp knife and spoon so that you are left with just a shell.

Fill with the chopped jelly.
