1. Zest the orange and set the zest aside.
2. Add the cranberries, dates and salt to a medium saucepan, plus the juice of the orange.
3. Set the pan over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries and dates are soft, about 8-10 minutes (might take 10-12 minutes if using frozen cranberries). Be sure to scrape the bottom of the pan as you stir. As the cranberries soften, mash them against the bottom or sides of the pot.
4. Take off the heat and add the orange zest.
5. Use a potato masher, blender, stick blender or food processor to blend the sauce to your desired consistency. If you want it really smooth, the appliances (especially the food processor) work better than the potato masher. Taste and add any salt, if necessary. Serve warm, room temperature or cold.
