1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 lb fresh or frozen cranberries
Zest of 1 orange
Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan. Add the cranberries and orange zest and bring to a boil.
Once it comes to a boil reduce heat and simmer over medium heat, stirring until cranberries start to crack open. You'll notice the sauce start to thicken.
Remove from heat, cool and refrigerate.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups
Simply isn't Thanksgiving or Christmas without it.
