Thanksgiving 2006: Cranberry Sauce

Seriously, this is SO easy - and very tasty. You'll never go back to canned cranberry sauce again!
12 ounces Cranberries
1 c. white sugar
1 c. orange juice
Optional: 1 t. grated orange rind (the orange part)

Place cranberries in a bowl of clean water. Pick through, discarding stems and rotten berries. Drain berries.
In a medium sized saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the orange juice. Stir in the cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and place sauce in a bowl. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.

Yields about 2 cups.
