12 oz package fresh cranberries, rinsed & drained
1 to 1 & 1/2 c. sugar (based on your desired sweetness)
1/2 c. water
1/4 c. orange juice
1/2 tsp vanilla
*Optional: add 1/4 tsp cinnamon & 1/4 c. small walnut pieces before baking
Preheat oven to 350.
Arrange cranberries evenly in glass 10x8 baking dish.
Combine sugar, water and orange juice in small bowl; mix well until sugar dissolves. Pour over cranberries.
Bake for 50-60 minutes until juice thickens & cranberries are glazed. Remove from oven to wire rack & cool. The sauce thickens up quite a bit once it is cooled completely. Serve warm or cold.
