Classic Cranberry Sauce
Deliciously tart and so easy to make, you'll never need (or want) to open a can of the weird jellied stuff again.
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup sugar
12-oz bag fresh or frozen cranberries (3 cups)
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
Suggestion: dash ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and ground cloves
Bring water, orange juice, sugar, and spices to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add cranberries and simmer, stirring occasionally, until berries just pop, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in zest, then cool.
