Photo: Alexandra Rowley
Yield Makes 10 servings (serving size: 1/4 cup)
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.

Ingredients

  • 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
