This is an unusual way to cook your holiday cranberries but I really love the way they look and taste.
1 (12 oz) bag fresh cranberries
1 ½ cups sugar
1/3 to 1 /2 cup brandy
1 Tablespoons finely shredded orange zest
1. Preheat oven to 325. Discard any soft or decayed cranberries.
2. Mix cranberries, sugar, brandy to taste, and orange zest in an 8 or 9-in square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, until most of the liquid has evaporated, 1 to 1/14 hours, stirring occasionally.
Make ahead: Cover and chill.
