cranberry and apples sauce

We LOVE cranberry sauce in our house, so when I found this recipe on Culinary Hill's website I decided to tweak it to make it my own. If you like your cranberry sauce more tart, use only half of the apple. Don't leave out the salt; it makes the cranberry flavor come alive! This sweeter, milder cranberry sauce is perfect served with cream cheese and crackers, on pound cake, ice cream, or even Holiday pancakes or waffles for breakfast. Great with turkey or ham, too.

    Add water, sugar, and salt to a saucepan; heat on medium heat until the sugar dissolves.
  • Cranberries and apple added to sugar mixture.
    Add cinnamon, cranberries, and grated apple to the saucepan.
  • Cranberry apple mixture simmering on the stove.
    Bring to a boil, then turn down to simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce reaches the desired degree of thickness, about five to ten minutes. I like mine with a few whole berries in it.
