Cranberry Sauce

I think my sauce is closer to a preserve, but I like my berries cooked down a bit.  It's a texture preference.  ;)  If you like your berries chunkier just reduce the cook time.  This sauce is very, very tart.  You can up the sugar is you need a bit more sweetness to it.  Personally, I like the whole exploding taste bud sensation.

Cranberry Sauce

12oz bag fresh cranberries, rinsed
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup orange juice
1 tbls orange zest
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt

Combine everything in a sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium heat.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  When berries have cooked down and the sauce has thickened, remove from heat.  Cool.
