  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup water
  • 12 oz fresh cranberries
  • tsp cinnamon


  • Rinse fresh cranberries and sort out to discard imperfect berries.
  • In a small saucepan bring water, sugar, and orange juice to a boil. Add cinnamon and cranberries to boiling mixture. Reduce heat to medium, stirring occasionally, for about 20-30 minutes. As the cranberries cook during the medium boil, they will pop.
  • When the majority of the cranberries appear to have "popped", i.e., they are all very soft, turn off the heat. The sauce will thicken as it cools for the next 1 hour.
  • Transfer into serving bowl and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours, or until it has set.
