1 lb fresh or frozen cranberries, washed
2 C water

Boil the cranberries in the water until mushy. Strain and push through a sieve into a large bowl. Discard the solids. To the bowl of cranberry mush, add sugar and boiling water. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add the orange juice and zest.
Freeze in small containers like an old Cool Whip tub. Serve frozen, cut into small pieces in bowls. It makes 2 ½ quarts.
