Cranberry and Cashew Nut Roast

This delicious alternative to a Christmas turkey, can be enjoyed all year round.

You might not be able to get dried cranberries outside of the festive period. So, to keep that sweet sour pop, try replacing the cranberries with dried apricots

Swap the nuts for salted peanuts, walnuts, almonds, or any other nuts you fancy
