Cranberry Orange Sauce for Turkey Day

For the past several years I've been making cranberry sauce.  It is so easy and so much tastier than what you buy in the can.  In the past years I have added minced clementine rinds to the sauce.  This year I thought I would go for even bigger orange flavor in the sauce and a few more spices besides the  cinnamon I had been adding.  Here's this year's recipe--

Cranberry Orange Sauce

1 Navel Orange
12-16 oz. cranberries, rinsed and drained
1 cup sugar

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground allspice
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
dash ground nutmeg or fresh ground nutmeg
pinch of salt

Into a sauce pot, zest 1 navel orange.  Juice the orange and reserve the juice in a measuring cup.  Add enough water in the measuring cup to make 1 cup of liquid.  Add the liquid to the pot along with remaining ingredients.  Bring to a boil.  Stir constantly to avoid burning.  Cook until the berries are all bursting and the mixture is a jam-like consistency.  Pour into a serving bowl to cool.  Once cooled, refridgerate until Turkey Day.  Enjoy!
