1 quart white vinegar
2 cups fresh cranberries, divided
4 (3-inch) sticks cinnamon
1/2 cup honey
1 orange
12-inch wooden skewers


Combine vinegar, 1 cup cranberries, and cinnamon in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; let stand 2 minutes. Stir in honey.

Using a citrus stripper or a paring knife, cut strips of rind from orange, reserving orange for other uses. Thread remaining 1 cup cranberries and orange rind on skewers; place in decorative bottles or jars.

Strain vinegar mixture, discarding cranberries. Pour liquid over skewers in bottles. Store at room temperature 2 weeks before using to let flavor fully develop. Remove skewers as vinegar level drops to prevent spoilage of cranberries.
