White Mandarin Cranberry Sauce

November 20, 2013


1 1/4 cups white sugar
1/4 cup water
1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries
1 cinnamon stick
1 tablespoon orange zest


Combine 1 1/4 cup sugar, vinegar, and water in a heavy medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Mix in cranberries, cinnamon stick, and orange peel. Reduce heat, and cover partially. Simmer until berries burst, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Cool completely, sauce will thicken as it cools. Discard cinnamon stick.
