Ingredients

  • 6 cups fresh cranberries
  • cup sugar or honey If you prefer the recipe a little more sweet, add in an extra ½-1 cup sugar. I like mine a little more tart, so I have less listed.
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Bring cranberries, sugar, water, salt and orange juice to a boil over medium heat, making sure to stir occasionally. Cook until berries have popped and the sauce has thickened. Mine took about 10 minutes. Your's might take less or more time, depeding on what medium heat looks like on your cooktop and how thick your pan is.
    After it is cooked, stir in the zest. Serve immediately or place in fridge for up to 4 days. I have gone longer, but flavor was compromised.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it.
