1 C fresh squeezed orange juice ( used 3 med. seedless naval oranges)
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. Reduce to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand to continue thickening. Stores for 1 week refrigerated. Serve at room temp.

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