Notes

*Note: Frozen works as well, but the texture will be different.

Directions

Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the cranberries and quickly pan-roast them, stirring frequently until they start to give off liquid and break down. Add the ginger, brown sugar, orange juice, orange zest, and salt, and reduce the heat to a simmer.

Cook for approximately 25-30 minutes, stirring. If it dries out too much and starts to stick, add a small amount of water and continue cooking. It should be a thick purée with some of the cranberries still intact.
