In a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the cranberry juice. Stir in the cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop, about 10 minutes. Stir in the cinnamon and orange zest.

Remove from heat and transfer the sauce to a bowl. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.


*Note: If you don't own a zester, a small grater will work well.
