I adapted this from an Emeril Lagasse recipe that appeared on the Food Network's website. It's a very easy, no fuss, no muss kind of recipe - my favorite kind.

1 bag (12 ounces) fresh cranberries, rinsed
Zest of one medium orange, two tangerines, or two clementines
1 orange chopped (or two tangerines or two clementines)
1 ½ cups sugar
2 cups water
Pinch of salt
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 ½ tablespoons cornstarch 
½ cup orange juice
 
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Over medium heat, bring the mixture to a slow boil and allow it to boil for about 10 minutes. Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes until the cranberries thicken then remove them from the heat and allow the cranberries to cool. Refrigerate until the cranberries chill which will thicken them further. Enjoy!
