Happy Thanksgiving + Quick & Easy Cranberry Sauce Recipe

The Delicious Truth will return tomorrow (if I don't fall into the cranberry sauce I just made). It's tart—cranberries' natural flavor—so add a little more sugar if necessary.

1 12-ounce (or similar size) package cranberries (fresh or frozen)
1 orange, juice and zest

1/3 cup white sugar (organic cane sugar, if possible)

1/4 cup cold water

Pinch salt (unrefined sea salt, if possible)
2 or 3 shakes ground cinnamon (optional)

Place all the ingredients into a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves. Simmer until cranberries burst and the sauce thickens, stirring and breaking cranberries occasionally, about 20 minutes. Cool and refrigerate.
