Makes 1 ½ cups
1 orange
2 cups (8 oz.) fresh (or frozen, thawed) cranberries
1 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Finely grate zest from orange and set aside. Using a sharp paring knife, cut off peel and white pith from orange. Working over a small bowl, cut between membranes to release segments into bowl.

Combine zest, cranberries, syrup, juice, and vanilla in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until cranberries have burst and sauce has thickened, 5–10 minutes. Add the oranges. Chill until cold.
