16 oz fresh cranberries, rinsed
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup cranberry juice
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 tbsp orange zest
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and stir well. Cook over medium heat until the berries pop open, about 10 minutes. Skim the foam off the surface with a spoon and discard. Cool to room temperature.
Refrigerate covered. Make a day ahead of Thanksgiving to meld flavors. Good for up to 3 months.
