Homemade Cranberry Sauce

makes about 2 1/2 cups

  • 12 oz. fresh cranberries
  • 1 apple, roughly diced 
  • juice and zest of 1 orange
  • a sprig of fresh rosemary, plus more for serving
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar 
  • A pinch of kosher salt 
  • 1/4 cup water

Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until ingredients are well combined. Cook until the cranberries pop and the apples soften, stirring occasionally, about 10-15 minutes.  Remove from heat and let cool. Discard the cinnamon sticks and rosemary sprig. Top with a rosemary sprig and serve.
