Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 20 minutes. This simple whip-it-up relish trumps the old cranberry sauce standby on healthfulness and taste. It can be made up to three days in advance, and stored in the refrigerator until Thanksgiving dinner.
1 (10-ounce) package fresh cranberries
1 cup water
3/4 cup sugar, or more to taste
1 3-inch orange rind strip
1/4 cup fresh orange juice (about 1/2 a large orange)
3 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
How to Make It
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, turn heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, until cranberries pop and mixture thickens.
Remove the cloves and the cinnamon stick with a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl; refrigerate until ready to use.
