Hmmmmmm, unpeeled I reading this recipe correctly or did I miss something? I don't think I've ever eaten anything with the orange peel before but the combination sounds amazing, as cranberries are probably one of my most favorite things about Thanksgiving dinner. I'm guessing the addition of oranges and cinnamon will really make me never go back to the traditional way of eating cranberries again. Yum!
