Wash and sort cranberries. Bring cranberries and water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Turn down the temperature and simmer until the cranberries pop. Add remaining ingredients, except pecans. Cook until thick, stirring occasionally. If the sauce doesn't thicken, put a couple of teaspoons of arrow root or corn starch in a small bowl and combine it with a small amount of the juice from the sauce.
