Strawberry Cranberry Syrup/Sauce
by Penny Barry

2 packages frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C water
1 bag fresh cranberries, crushed
peel form one thin-skinned orange, cut into chunks
2 cinnamon sticks

Drain liquid form strawberries, add to saucepan. Add sugar and water and bring to a boil. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil again. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Refrigerate for one day, then remove cinnamon sticks and orange peel. As an alternative, also add some small bits of orange peel to remain. Even though it is called sauce, the natural pectin causes this to set up like cranberry sauce.
