This is simple and delicious. Much better than canned!
Bring 1 c. water and 1 c. sugar to a boil in saucepan, add 3 c. cranberries and bring to boil again. reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Dish into small serving bowls and leave out at room temperature until set. Refrigerate until serving. (optional, add 1 tsp. grated orange peel...yummy)
