- 4 cups fresh cranberries
- 1 large orange
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- In a medium saucepan, combine the cranberries, orange zest and juice, sugar, and salt. Stir well. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat and allow it to cook, stirring often, until the cranberries burst and the sauce becomes a jam-like consistency, between 8 and 10 minutes. For a smoother cranberry sauce you can mash the mixture with a potato masher or use an immersion blender to blend it.
- Enjoy immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
