Cranberry Sauce (Part I of Cranberry Glazed Ham)

My lovely wife Yvonne suggested that since we are doing ham this year, why not make the glaze from orange-cranberry sauce instead of the usual raspberry jam.

Here is the recipe for the first part, the cranberry sauce.

1 cup sugar
1 cup orange juice
12oz. bag fresh cranberries

In a small to medium sauce pan put; sugar,

orange juice,

and cranberries.

Bring to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer until all of the berries have popped and the sauce is starting to thicken.

Pour into a heatproof bowl and allow to cool.

This is sort of obvious but this sauce is great as a Thanksgiving side dish, as a relish on a leftover turkey sandwich or, as we will find out on Christmas, a delicious ham glaze when combined with Dijon mustard and brown sugar.
