Cranberry Apples

Brenda Forbes Recipe

By Brenda Forbes BrnJune

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!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
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!

Ingredients

4 to 5 medium
apples - different varieties give the best flavor
1/2 c
water
2 Tbsp
ground cinnamon (or to taste)
1 can(s)
whole berry cranberry sauce

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!!
