Cranberry Sauce with Lime

Just made this for Thursday.  Cranberry and lime make a nice flavor combination.  While straight up cranberry sauce is delicious on its own, I usually like to add a little dash of something - more ideas here.

1/2 lb whole cranberries, rinsed and picked over
Zest of one lime
1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar
Splash of water

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan.  Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the berries have all popped and the sauce has thickened to a consistency you like.  Remove from heat, let cool, and refrigerate until ready to serve.  Sauce will keep for at least several days in the fridge.

Serves about 6.
