Cranberry Relish/Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is definitely a must-have for our Thanksgiving dinner.  Like a lot of families, I'm sure, we always had the canned version and I always loved it.  Once I started cooking more and more from scratch and I saw how easy a homemade version was, I haven't gone back to the can.

I love the tartness of this relish/sauce and I also love the texture that the whole berries give it.  It comes together very quickly and can be made ahead of time, in fact, I usually make this at least two days before Thanksgiving.  It does need time to chill in the refrigerator to firm up a bit but other than that, it's a very easy way to enjoy cranberries!

12 oz. fresh cranberries
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup water
Zest and juice of 1 orange, zest reserved

1. Heat a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and combine the cranberries, sugar, water, and orange juice.
2. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once the cranberries begin to burst, reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes. Stir in the zest.
3. Pour into a serving bowl and cover. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

I think that what you published made a great deal of
sense. But, think about this, suppose you wrote a catchier
post title? I ain't suggesting your content isn't
solid., but what if you added something that makes people want
more? I mean "Cranberry Relish/Cranberry Sauce" is kinda
vanilla. You should glance at Yahoo's home page and note how they write post titles to get people to click.
You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what you've written.
In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
