Fresh & Organic: Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce Recipe
1 cup sugar
1 cup water or orange juice
4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries (1 – 12 oz. pkg)
(optional: pecans, orange peel, raisins, currants, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice)

Directions: Wash and pick over cranberries. In a saucepan bring to a boil water/orange juice and sugar, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add cranberries, return to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer 10 minutes or until cranberries burst.
At this point you may add any optional ingredients.
Remove from heat. Cool completely at room temperature and then chill in refrigerator. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.
