Crockpot Cranberry Sauce

This delicious and easy recipe comes from A Year of Slow Cooking.
12 oz cranberries (fresh or frozen)
--1/2 cup orange juice
--1/2 cup water
--1/2 cup brown sugar
--1/2 cup white sugar
--1/4 tsp cinnamon

The Directions.
I doubled this recipe and used a big 7 qt. crockpot.

Rinse off the cranberries and put them into your crockpot. Add the orange juice and water. I used fresh squeezed.
Add the sugar and the cinnamon. Stir. There will be an awful lot of liquid, and the cranberries will float .
Cover and cook on high. It will take about 3 hours. Stir ever 30 minutes or so. I wondered if the sauce would ever thicken. The sauce was still watery when I put it in the refrigerator and by the morning the cranberry sauce thickened and was wonderful.
