Ahh…’Tis the season! And the season officially started yesterday with thanksgiving. :) Many of us traveled to multiple family and friends houses, to together, enjoy a Turkey feast! At my moms house, I was in charge of the most important token of the spread, yes, drumroll please…the cranberry sauce! Heres a delish twist on the usually recipe (which still, by the way, is my favorite.
It starts with granny smith apples and ends with dried cranberries…Check it out!
Double Cranberry Applesauce (6 servings)
6 large granny smiths, peeled and cubed
1 (12 oz) package fresh cranberries
1 small lemon, rinsed and sliced thinly (peel and all)
1 c sugar
1/2 c water
3/4 c sweetened, dried cranberries
Combine the first 5 ingredients together in a large saucepan; bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring often.
Reduce heat; simmer, still stirring often for 15 minutes or until cranberries “PoP”! and mixture starts to thicken. Remove from heat, stir in dried cranberries. Cool. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
It’s yummers! Try different kind of apples and dried fruit in the recipe, like apricots!
