Cranberry Orange Sauce

I made this cranberry orange sauce yesterday and it is now patiently waiting in the freezer with my rolls and pie crusts for next Thursday! I tried a little something different, combining what my mom does (orange marmalade) with a recipe I read online (orange juice) and used a little of each. I really like the flavor and extra texture from the little pieces of orange rind in the marmalade. I realized when I got ready to take a pic that I have no pretty little glass bowls! I put it in a tea cup, and have to admit, it's pretty cute. :)

Cranberry Orange Sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup sugar
4 cups (1 12-oz package) fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup orange marmalade

1. In a saucepan bring water, orange juice, and sugar, to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add cranberries, return to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer for 10 minutes or until cranberries burst.
2. Remove from heat and add marmalade. Stir until combined. Cool completely at room temperature and then chill in refrigerator. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools. Keep covered in refrigerator up to a few days or freeze.
 Makes about 3 cups.
