Place the cranberries, cranberry juice, dried cranberries, and sugar into the inner pot and stir. Secure the lid, ensuring that the steam release handle is in the Sealing position. Press the Pressure Cook button and set the cooking time for 2 minutes.

When the cooking time is complete, turn the steam release handle to the Venting position to quickly release the pressure. Remove the lid.

Add the apricot preserves, orange zest and juice, nutmeg, and cinnamon and stir. Use a potato masher to mash the sauce, leaving just a few cranberries whole. Press Cancel.

Let the pot sit in the device for 2 hours to cool. Place in a container and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours to thicken.
