Your very own cranberry sauce; make ahead an chill.
Serves 8 to 12

2 cup water
2 cup sugar

In a 3-qt. saucepan on medium heat, combine water and sugar, heating until sugar dissolves. Bring mixture to a boil, but do not stir; boil for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, add cranberries and simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes, or until sauce thickens.
