Cumberland Sauce


Chef Jonathan Collins created a menu featuring Victorian Christmas goose with pan gravy and stuffing, but the real kicker is the Cumberland sauce. This fruity sauce is as easy and melting things in a pot, and tastes great too!


1 lemon, zested
1 orange, zested and juiced
1 cup red currant jelly
1 cup tawny or ruby port
1 tablespoon ground mustard
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon butter
