Cranberry Relish

  • 1 orange worth of peel, peeled wide using a vegetable peeler
  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • In a medium saucepan, combine cranberries, sugar, orange peel, cinnamon stick, and water. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in orange juice.

I have NO idea how to make this picture more appetizing, but seriously, I've gone from a cranberry non-believer to cranberry addict!
