1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
2 (1/2- by 3-inch long) strips orange rind
How to Make It
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 10–12 minutes or until cranberries pop and mixture thickens.
Remove orange rind; set sauce aside to cool completely. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until well-chilled. (Sauce can be made up to 2 days ahead.)

This is the best recipe for fresh cranberries-so simple and full of flavor. I followed the recipe but also added a small amt of pure orange oil to enhance the cranberry flavor. Everybody loved it. I get the orange oil from King Arthur website. I served it with turkey for Christmas and will always use this recipe for cranberry sauce.
