1 (12 oz) bag fresh cranberries (about 3 cups)
⅓ cup orange juice (bottled or freshly squeezed)
⅔ cup water
½ cup granulated sugar, cane sugar or raw sugar
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
Garnish, Orange strips
In a sauce pan over medium high heat, add the cranberries, orange juice, water sugar and ginger. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until the cranberries have burst and the sauce has thickened slightly. You don’t want the cranberries to cook down to a completely mushy texture, you want them to be able to see the burst cranberries. This will take about 15 minutes, you want the sauce to coat the back of a spoon.
When cooled, put in a bowl and garnish with the orange strip.
