2 cups fresh cranberries
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup water, or fresh orange juice
Wash and pick over cranberries. Place in wide bottomed saucepan. Add honey and water. Cook over medium heat until cranberry skins pop. Chill before serving.
Note! I use the Ocean Spray™ Cranberries and usually buy 2 or 3 bags of them to keep in the freezer, as I find that you only find cranberries at certain times of the year.
