Zesty Cranberry Sauce with Orange

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 12 oz. fresh cranberries
  • Zest of one range
  • Juice of 1 orange

In a medium sauce pot, combine water, sugar, cranberries, salt, orange juice and zest. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the cranberries have all burst. Remove from the heat, stir in the optional orange liqueur, transfer to a heat-proof plastic or glass bowl and chill completely before serving.
