Cranberry Sauce
From Elena Osterreicher

2 12 ounce packages fresh cranberries
1 orange, zested
2 cups fresh squeezed orange juice
2 cups packed brown sugar
3 cinnamon sticks

  1. In a medium saucepan, add all of the ingredients and stir to combine.
  2. Add enough water to cover the mixture and bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about an hour.
  4. Taste the sauce for sweetness and adjust if necessary. If too tart, add a bit more sugar; if too sweet, add a bit more juice.
  5. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is nice and thick in consistency, another 30 minutes to an hour*.
  6. Let mixture cool and serve with turkey, mashed potatoes, etc.

Serves 20-24.
