- Wash the cranberries and add it to a small saucepan.

- As the mixture starts boiling, the cranberries will burst and will soften.

- Cover the pan, reduce the heat to very low and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes.
- Open the pan, stir the contents, add the vanilla extract, cook for another 2 more minutes keeping the pan open.
