I need suggestions. Assuming it is going to be better than the stuff you can buy in cans.

We make it every fall/winter.

Just do a web search and you'll see fifty variations of the same recipe - boil cranberries, sugar, orange/lemon zest, and water until the berries pop.

My husband does. He doesn't work from a recipe, just plays it by ear.

When fresh cranberries are available, Cranberry/Orange relish is a really good side dish.

I love homemade cranberry sauce, I don't like the canned stuff. But some people I know have to have the canned stuff or nothing, lol. But this stuff is saucy, not gelatinous.
How I make it:

12 oz bag fresh cranberries
3/4 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

Bring water, sugar, and salt to a boil in a saucepan, on high heat. When the sugar is dissolved, add the berries, and bring the temp down to medium. Simmer till about 2/3 of the berries have popped. Cool to room temp.
If you want to add orange, include some orange zest in the first boil before you add the berries.
Then after you're done, stir in 2 tablespoons orange liqueur.
It's super easy

I'm in the lemon zest camp, and I cook it longer t make it thicker so it will gel in a pretty mold.

Instead of the granulated sugar could a person use 3/4 cup maple syrup or xylitol?
