Any kind of orange will work fine in this but the blood orange season is just starting, and it really takes the sauce to a heavenly level.

The best homemade cranberry sauce with fresh orange juice, vanilla and honey!
- 12 oz fresh cranberries
- 1/4 c granulated sugar or maple syrup to taste
- the juice from 2 blood oranges
- the zest from 1 orange

Add the cranberries, sugar or maple syrup and orange juice to a sauce pan. Bring to a simmer and cook on low flame for 5 minutes or until the cranberries pop and start to soften. Stir in the vanilla & orange zest and cook for one more minute.
Allow to cool and serve at room temperature or refrigerate.
