I’m not usually a cranberry sauce-kind-of-guy, so I have no prior experience making it from scratch. But when I came across this recipe for maple cranberry sauce it sounded good (even to me) so I hopped right in and made a double batch for Thanksgiving. It was a big hit.

Transfer all ingredients to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
Stir and let the mixture simmer. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened and all of the cranberries have burst. Stir occasionally.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly before serving.
I could not find fresh oranges so I substituted just over 1/4 cup of bottled no-pulp orange juice
