I am so excited to bring you some of my best Thanksgiving recipes for our “Everything but the Turkey” series this month. Up next is my apple cranberry sauce. It’s a flavorful twist on traditional cranberry sauce and is sure to spruce things up at your Thanksgiving table.
To avoid being a frazzled hostess, prepare this sauce a little ahead of time. In fact, it can be kept in the refrigerator for up to two weeks if you store it in a closed jar. I recommend preparing it the Saturday before Thanksgiving, and jarring-up a few miniature versions to send home with Thanksgiving dinner guests. Tie some ribbon on the jar, and you’re all set!
- 8 cups of cranberries
- 8 small or 6 medium apples sliced
- 1/2 cup sugar
In a large sauce pan place cranberries, sliced apple, and sugar. Simmer on low heat, stirring regularly to prevent sticking, for 45 minutes until completely cooked and softened. Press the cooked cranberries and cooked apples with a fork to completely combine. The fruit should have a smooth yet chunky consistency. Let the applesauce cool then scoop into mason jars for keeping.
Stay tuned for more Thanksgiving fun later this month!
