- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest, optional
- 12 ounces (340 grams) fresh or frozen cranberries, (about 3 cups)
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Salt, to taste
Bring the water, juice, sugar, and zest to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat.
Reduce the heat to medium, add the cranberries and cinnamon, and simmer until two-thirds of the cranberries have burst and the mixture has thickened slightly, about 10 to 12 minutes. Taste and season with salt and add more sugar if necessary.
Let cool before serving or storing in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
