Simple and delicious with just a hint of orange.


  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 12-oz bag fresh or frozen cranberries (3 cups)

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest


Bring water and sugar to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add cranberries and simmer, stirring occasionally, until berries just pop, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in zest, then cool. Can be made 3 days ahead and chilled, covered. Makes about 2-1/2 cups.
