Add fresh cranberries, orange juice, water, granulated sugar and salt to a medium pot over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, about 12-15 minutes.
Allow to cook until cranberries start to break down and burst, about an additional 5 minutes. Crush with a spoon to break down the cranberries a bit more.
Stir in chia seeds and orange zest.
Cook an additional 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat and allow to cook and thicken completely.
