Recipe notes

For cranberry sauce, use about 1/4 cup (2 oz / 60g) of whole-cranberry cranberry sauce, drained a bit of the sauce, or 1/4 cup (two handfuls) of dried cranberries. Don't use cranberry jelly, it would just "tarten" up the whole tart as it were, instead of giving nice tart bits in between all the sweetness.

Instead of pecans, you can use walnuts.

Instead of 2 oranges, you can use 1 orange and 1 lemon.
