Recipe: Cranberry, apple and orange sauce

This is what I did with the other half bag of cranberries after making the merry berry cherry jam.

half a bag of Sainsburies frozen cranberries
2 medium cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped
the juice and rind of two oranges
half a stick of cinnamon
some water
three or four tbsp of granulated sugar (to taste)

Put the cranberries, apple, orange juice and zest (and any fleshy bits that come out as you're juicing the orange) in a pan with some water and the cinnamon stick.
Simmer until the cranberries and apple are cooked.
Add the sugar and stir in well.  Simmer again for a few minutes.
Allow to cool and pop into a freezer container and freeze if not used immediately.

You could push it through a sieve to make it smooth, if you want.  I might do that before using, depending on how much time I have.

I'm freezing it for Christmas and will add some port before using.
