Let's start with the main thing - which cranberries do you use? If frozen, then it needs to be thawed before cooking, and then thoroughly rinse the berries with warm running water, selecting the crushed ones. The same applies to fresh cranberries. The orange also needs to be washed, then peeled and set aside, it will also be useful to us. Squeeze the juice out of the pulp using a juicer or strong hands. And from the peel we make the zest, with the help of a fine grater. We don’t need the whole zest, so the rest can be used for other dishes. Wash the onion, peel and chop finely and finely. Be afraid that it will be bitter - take a red onion, it is perfect. The ingredients are ready, now let's start the main process.

Take a stewpan, if you do not have it, take a deep frying pan or saucepan. Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the chopped onion in it. 5 minutes is enough for its readiness.

We mix the sauce with a culinary spatula, reduce the heat, and cover the saucepan. We prepare the sauce for 20 minutes, then turn off the hotplate, and cool the sauce before serving, putting it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.
