This recipe from Outpost Natural Foods, our local food store in Milwaukee, looks insanely easy. Therefore, there isn't any excuse to buy canned cranberry sauce (or as I call it, Cranberry Jello).
1 twelve-ounce bag fresh cranberries
1 1/2 cups orange juice
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons ginger, finely minced
Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until honey dissolves.
Reduce heat and simmer until sauce is thick, stirring often and partially mashing the berries with the back of the spoon as you go along.
Remove from heat and transfer to a dish.
Chill and serve.
