So for those of you who are part of the canned coalition, I urge you to take 15 minutes out of your busy holiday schedule and make real cranberry sauce. It may become a holiday staple once you find out how simple it is.

- 1 (16-ounce) bag frozen cranberries, thawed
- 2 oranges, juiced (enough for 1 cup of liquid) and 1 orange zested
- 1/2 c.-1 c. light brown sugar (depends on how sweet you want it)
- dash of salt
- 1 cinnamon stick
Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan and simmer until the cranberries just begin to burst, about 15 minutes. Transfer to serving dish and chill.
