Cranberry Syrup: Boil 1 cup of fresh cranberries in 3 cups of orange juice for 15 minutes, until they pop and release all the flavor. Remove from heat and add 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary sprigs and a pinch of salt to the mixture. Let it rest for another 10 minutes. Blend the mixture in a blender, then strain.
