Cranberry Sauce

Makes about 2 cups (4-6 servings)



1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup water

4 cups (1 12 oz. package) fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped

2 Tbsp. orange zest, from 1 orange



In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Cranberries should be softened and the mixture should coat the back of a wooden spoon.


Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. Place in a serving bowl or jar(s), cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Cranberry sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
