Traditional Cranberry Sauce
Traditional, sweet, and slightly tart. It's not Thanksgiving without this seasonal accompaniment.
12oz. bag of fresh cranberries, rinsed and drained
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
zest of 1/2 small orange
Directions: Bring the water and sugar to a gentle boil over medium heat. Reduce to a simmer for five minutes, then add in the cranberries and stir. Simmer for ten minutes, or until the cranberries pop, then remove from the stove and cool. The sauce will thicken as it sits.
Can be made up to four days ahead.
