Recipe: Fresh Cranberry Orange Sauce (from Two Peas and Their Pod)
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1 tbsp orange zest
Rinse cranberries with cold water. In a medium saucepan, add sugar, water and orange juice. Stir until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and add cranberries and orange zest. Return to a boil and then reduce heat to medium low. Cook until cranberries start to burst, about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Pour sauce into a bowl and chill in the refrigerator. Serve chilled.
Can be made 1-2 days in advance.
