This recipe calls for:
-1/2 cup of water
-1/2 cup of sugar
-1 bag of fresh cranberries
-1 can of sliced mandarin oranges
-1 orange juiced and some grated orange peel
Add water and sugar to a sauce pan and cook on medium high heat. Stir to combine and once sugar is dissolved add all other ingredients except the sliced oranges. As the cranberries cook they will make an audible popping noise. When the cranberries stop popping (this should take about 15 minutes) add oranges and cook for an additional five minutes. Stir to combine as they are cooking. Take off of heat and let sauce thicken for several minutes before eating. Add additional sugar to taste as needed.
Cranberries after taken off heat and sauce thickens.
