Citrus Cranberry Sauce

Wow, i have seen my share of cranberry sauces on here lately. This year i wanted something a little different, something with a local ingredient that i adore, maple syrup. This can be made with frozen whole cranberries also, and definatly doesn’t have to just be served on the holidays, it’s great for picnic, bbq’s and even a base for a BBQ sauce!
2 bags whole cranberries, rinsed and picked through
3/4 cup water
juice and zest of one orange
1 cup white sugar
Pure Maple syrup to taste
pinch salt (1/2 teaspoon)
pinch cinnamon (optional)
Dissolve sugar in water and orange juice. Add orange zest and cranberries and bring to a boil, turn down heat to med high and simmer till most of cranberries have popped, Stirring constantly. Add salt, cinnamon and syrup to taste.
Cool completely and refrigerate at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. It will thicken.
