  • Rinse cranberries and pick over for leaves and stems. Set aside.
    • Grate orange rind before cutting and juicing oranges. Add enough water to juice to make 2 cups total.
    • Place orange juice/water mixture in large dutch oven. Add sugars and bring to boil so that sugars are dissolved.

    • Let mixture return to boil. Lower heat to simmer and cook, covered, for 12 minutes until berries have popped.
    • Cool and then place in dish and refrigerate overnight.
