1 12-ounce bag fresh whole cranberries
2 tablespoons water
2 cinnamon sticks
1 cup orange marmalade
1 to 2 tablespoons sugar


Place the cranberries, water, and cinnamon sticks in a medium saucepan. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring, until the cranberries pop. Remove from heat, stir in the marmalade, and cool. Add sugar if the sauce is too tart. (This can be made up to 4 days ahead.) Cover and refrigerate. Serve at room temperature.

Time-saver: Using marmalade to flavor the cranberries is a quick way to add a sweet, complex dimension to a traditionally boring side dish.
