(Makes 2 1/2 cups)


  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice (preferably freshly squeezed)
  • 2 ounces Grand Marnier
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1 12-ounce package of fresh cranberries (3 cups)
  • 1 orange, zested


  1. In a medium pot, over medium-high heat, add juice, Grand Marnier, brown sugar, cinnamon and clove. Stir until sugar dissolves.
  2. Add cranberries and zest, and bring to a boil.
  3. Cook for 5-10 minutes, until all of the cranberries have exploded (it's like popping popcorn). Stir occasionally to help break the berries.
  4. 4. Allow to cool and serve.
