Cranberry Sauce with Apples
Making your own cranberry sauce is so easy and fast, and it tastes great. This is a Penzey's recipe,which I've halved (and it still makes plenty). Homemade cranberry sauce is good with not only turkey, but chicken and pork, crackers, or plain by the spoonful.
2 cups fresh cranberries, rinsed
1 large tart apple, peeled, cored and chopped into 1/2 inch chunks
1/2 cup apple juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. minced orange peel
Pour the juice and sugar into a medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Bring the juice and sugar to a boil. Add the cranberries, apple and orange peel.
Return to a boil and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring often. The cranberries will pop and the sauce will thicken nicely. Store in the refrigerator.
