Homemade Cranberry Sauce
- 1 cup sugar
- ½ cup orange juice
- ½ cup water
- 12 oz fresh cranberries
- ⅛ 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.
