Cranberry Sauce


A simple straight forward cranberry sauce.  How do you eat your cranberry sauce?  Do you smear it on your turkey?  Use it as a palate cleanser?  Steer clear of it altogether? Hoard it for leftover sandwiches?  Mine gets its own little spot on the plate, doesn't touch anything else and I eat it first.  Although, I'm thinking this one could be worked into a dessert somehow.  Maybe macaroons or a pavolva or cake filling.  

Can be made a couple days ahead of time and stored in fridge until ready to serve. 

Cranberry Sauce 

1 lb fresh cranberries

zest and juice of 1 orange

pinch salt

1/4 cup sugar

1 cup water

dashes of cinnamon and all spice

Combine all ingredients in a small pot over medium high heat.  Cook until cranberries burst, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.
