cranberry sauce with orange

Yes this week is all about Thanksgiving. So enjoy yet another recipe. 

cranberry sauce with orange for 10 (or 6 with leftovers)

12 oz fresh cranberries
1/2 an orange zested
2 cinnamon sticks
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. orange juice

In a medium sized saucepan combine all ingredients over high heat and add 1/2 c of water or more until the cranberries are covered. Once the mixture is brought to a boil, reduce the heat to med low and let simmer for an hour or until thick. 

Let the mixture cool and refrigerate it in an air tight container.

If you have leftovers, my favorite thing to do is make a turkey cranberry panini. 
Just layer leftover turkey, mozzarella slices, and cranberry sauce on bread and press in a griddle or pannini press to get things nice and toasty. Its a must with my family.
