Brenda's notes for this recipe:
Rarely do I not have this made and in my refrigerator! When a craving for "something sweet" raises it's ugly head this recipe is a good (and healthy) "fix"!

It is a great side for any type of breakfast and is absolutely delicious with pork or chicken. Serve it hot or cold--either way it is wonderful!

We chose to use a combination of Granny Smith, Gala & Red Delicious apples for this wonderful recipe. The mix was terrific, with the Granny Smiths being the real stand-outs. Try serving them warm atop flaky biscuits... Mmmmm, good!

Directions

1
Wash the apples, halve, and remove the cores and stems.
2
Chop the apples (do not remove the skin) into large chunks, approximatley 1/2" to 3/4" in size.
3
Place apples, cinnamon, and water in medium size sauce pan and cook on medium low heat for approximately 20 minutes or until fork tender. Do NOT put a lid on the pan as it will make the apples mushy.
4
Remove apples from heat. Gently stir in canned whole berry cranberries.
5
Apples can be served immediately while hot or chilled and served up to two weeks later. (The dish can be reheated as desired.) Enjoy!!

Sounds and looks great. I can't wait to fix it.. I am a diabetic, so when that sweet craving pops up I like to have something to go to instead of a sugary desert. Thanks for posting.
