Yield: 8-10 servings
Total Time: 30 minutes
1 cup red wine

Combine sugar with red wine in a saucepan over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Add cranberries, cinnamon stick and orange peel. Bring the mixture back to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir often to help break down the cranberries.
