How to Make Simple Cranberry Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Place the cranberries in a colander and rinse them. Pick out and discard any damaged or bruised cranberries.
  2. Put the water and sugar and orange peel in a medium saucepan on high heat and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
  3. Add the cranberries to the pot and return to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until most of the cranberries have burst.
  4. Remove the pot from heat. Let cool completely at room temperature, remove the orange peel then transfer to a bowl to chill in the refrigerator. Note that the cranberry sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
