Cranberry Orange Simple Syrup

Ingredients:  – Cranberries (fresh or frozen) – Sugar – An orange – Water

Using a vegetable peeler, remove the skin from the outside of the orange. Try to get as little of the white part (the pith) as possible.

Place cranberries, sugar, water, orange juice, and orange peels into a small pot over medium heat.

Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes. You'll know it's done when the mixture starts to foam and rise up in the pot.

Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool for 10 minutes. Place a fine mesh sieve over a bowl and strain the mixture through the sieve.

Chill syrup completely before using. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
