Ingredients:

1 package fresh cranberries -- rinsed and picked over (12-ounce)
1 strips zest from 1 orange -- about 2-tablespoons
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 cups water
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 dash salt
1 dash cayenne
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup fresh orange juice
 

Preparation / Directions:

Put the cranberries in a medium-size non-reactive nonstick saucepan. Add the zest. Peel and seed the orange, discard the white pith, and coarsely chop. Add the chopped orange to the pot of cranberries along with the sugar, water, vanilla, salt, cayenne, and cinnamon and bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Dissolve the cornstarch in the orange juice. Add the mixture to the cranberries and stir to blend. Simmer another 20 minutes until the mixture is thick like syrup. Cool completely, then spoon into a decorative dish and pass at the table. Will keep for 3 days in the refrigerator.
