Apple Cranberry Sauce
The cranberries add a nice tangy twist to otherwise ordinary applesauce.
5 cortland or other sweet tart cooking apples, peeled,
cored, and coarsely chopped
Juice from 1⁄2 lemon
1⁄2 cup fresh or thawed frozen cranberries
3–4 tbsp. sugar
3 pinches ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 375°. Put apples into a large bowl. Add lemon juice, cranberries, sugar, and cinnamon, and mix well.
2. Transfer to a medium glass or ceramic baking dish, cover with foil, and bake, stirring occasionally, until apples are very soft, 1–1 1⁄2 hours.
3. Remove dish from oven and gently break up apples and cranberries with the back of a wooden spoon. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
