In a medium-sized pot, combine the cranberries, sugar, and water. Stir to blend. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to a simmer and add the cinnamon stick, bay leaf, and rosemary.

Stir to blend and simmer for 4-6 more minutes. (Some of the cranberries will burst and some will remain whole.) Remove the whole rosemary sprig and bay leaf. Add the orange juice and zest, stir, and let cool before serving.
