"An elegant, somewhat tart option to replace the canned cranberry sauce we are all familiar with. This dish is easy to prepare and looks beautiful on the table. You can make this a few days ahead and store it in the refrigerator."
Stir sugar, wine, water, orange zest, and salt together in a large pot. Bring to a boil. Add cranberries and simmer until popped, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat and cool; drain extra liquid. Transfer to the refrigerator.
