For those of you who, like me, aren’t what one would call “planners.” For those of you who might be thinking, “hmmm, I suppose I should make some cranberry sauce tomorrow,” here ya go:
12 oz. fresh cranberries
1 large orange, zested and juiced
½ cup natural sugar
½ cup water
1. Combine water, orange zest, orange juice and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves (2-3 minutes).
2. Add cranberries and bring the mixture to a boil.
3. Reduce the heat and simmer until the cranberries explode, about 7 minutes.
