Really, just don't do it. Thanksgiving turkey deserves a worthy mate. Fresh cranberry sauce is so easy and tastes so much better then the lump of cranberry gel you get out of a can.
1 lb Fresh Cranberries (rinsed)
zest of one orange
juice of one orange
1 1/4 cup sugar
Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan. Simmer on low for 15 mins (or more) till all the cranberries burst and the sauce thickens. Refrigerate until time to serve. I made mine the day before, I figure it's just one less thing to do tomorrow.
