Not even gonna lie. I ripped this off Foodnetwork/ Aaron McCargo Jr.

I did make this last year for Thanksgiving. We don't even like cranberry sauce, but I saw him make it on TV and it just looked good. The boys LOVED it. I used the left overs on biscuits and waffles. It is a keeper and can be made several days in advance.

How to Make Cinnamon Apple Cranberry Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the cranberry juice, cranberries, cinnamon and sugar. Bring to a boil and let cook for 5 minutes.
