Servings: 7 servings (1 3/4 cups)
- 12 ounces fresh cranberries*
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon orange zest* from 1 orange
- ¼ cup fresh orange juice
- ¼ cup water
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup*
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 pinches salt
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Stir.
Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat as needed to continue cooking at a low boil, stirring often, for 7-10 minutes, until the cranberries burst and the sauce thickens.
Taste for sweetness. If you want the cranberry sauce sweeter you can stir in 1-2 more tablespoons of granulated sugar or pure maple syrup.
Serve warm or chilled.
- Frozen cranberries may also be used. You do not need to thaw them first.
- For less orange flavor, omit or reduce the amount of orange zest.
- If you don't have pure maple syrup, try an equivalent amount of water plus 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
- Cranberry sauce may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 1 week, or in the freezer for 3 months.
