  1. 1 (12-ounce) bag fresh cranberries
  2. 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons water, divided
  3. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon orange zest
  5. 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  6. 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the cranberries, 1 1/2 cups water, sugar, orange zest, and orange juice. Cook until cranberry skins begin to split, about 5 to 10 minutes. Using a potato masher, crush cranberries until no whole berries remain.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, combine remaining 2 tablespoons water and cornstarch, and stir until smooth. Pour into the cranberry mixture and cook for 6 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat, and cool for 15 minutes before serving.
