Cranberry-Orange Sauce

I have made this several times and I absolutely love it.  It tastes so good slathered on a thick slice of turkey!

1 12 oz. bag of fresh cranberries
3/4 c. sugar
zest and juice of one orange
1 cinnamon stick

Combine zest, juice, sugar, and cinnamon stick with 1/2 cup of water.  Cook over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves.  Add cranberries and bring to a boil.  Once boiling, reduce heat to low and allow to simmer.  Simmer until the berries have popped or you can press them easily against the side of the pan to squish them (I don't like whole cranberries in my sauce).  Cool to room temperature or refrigerate.  Remove cinnamon stick before serving.
