How to Make The Best Cranberry Sauce
- In a large saucepan, add sugar, orange juice, water and spices; cook until sugar dissolves and comes to a rolling boil. About 3 minutes.
Rinse berries and pick out the bad ones. Add the cranberries to the boiling syrup. Continue boiling just until the cranberries begin to crack, about 2 - 3 minutes. Do not overcook.
Remove from heat and stir in the zest. Cool at room temperature. Store in container with lid, until ready to serve.
