Orange Cranberry Sauce (VIDEO)

This cranberry sauce is always made the day ahead of Thanksgiving to give it a chance to cool and gel - and besides, that's one less thing to worry about on the actual big day!  This is sweet and tangy, thanks to orange juice and orange zest.  And thanks to the juice, I was able to decrease the sugar by half!
