Cranberry Sauce with Orange Juice

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

  1. Combine water, sugar, orange juice, cinnamon stick, ginger, orange zest, and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sugar is dissolved, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Stir cranberries into the sugar mixture in the saucepan and return to a boil over medium heat. Cook until cranberries start to burst and mixture thickens slightly, 8 to 10 minutes; sauce will thicken further upon cooling.
