First and most importantly rinse the cranberries under cold water and eliminate some of the damaged or tired looking berries.
1. I love to take 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 of freshly squeezed orange juice
2. One cup of ordinary sugar ( like the crystal type)
3. 4 cups or fresh cranberries
4. I also like to add the zest of the oranges
My second step after rinsing the cranberries is to boil the liquid until the sugar is dissolved.
Then I add the cranberries and simmer for about 10- 15 minutes until most of the cranberries have burst.
There were years when I added nutmeg and cinnamon to make the flavors more festive. This year I wanted it to be purer, or should I say simpler. Hence it is a personal preference. There were times I would make it with Orange Juice only, my point being you will not ruin it either way. Most guest could not tell the difference. They will just know it tastes good.
Once the cranberries have burst, I remove the pot from the stove and let it cool at room temperature. I prefer to put it in the fridge for a day to have the flavors be more pronounced and the sauce to be thicker.
This is probably one of the easiest Sauce to make and it will yield about 2 cups of fresh cranberry sauce. In my opinion better tasting than the canned stuff.
In case you are wondering the entire process from start to finish takes less than 20 minutes.
