  1. Combine cranberries, Splenda, salt and orange juice in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, and cook, stirring occasionally, until cranberries pop and liquid starts to reduce, about 15 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to low, and simmer until liquid has a thick consistency, about 12 more minutes.
  3. Remove from heat, mix in orange zest, and cool completely for about 2 hours. Taste and adjust sweetness and flavoring.
