I like this so much better than plain cranberry sauce with roasted chicken or turkey.

cran-applesauce 001

  • 10 cups peeled, chopped apples
  • 24 oz. cranberries (2 bags)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water

Sterilize jars in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes.  Ladle boiling water over the lids in a bowl.  Leave jars and lids in the hot water until you’re ready to fill the jars. 

Combine all ingredients in a large pot.  Cook, stirring occasionally until the cranberries begin to burst.  Continue cooking, stirring often, until apples are cooked through and the sauce is thick, about 30-40 minutes.  Ladle into sterilized jars and screw on caps.

Process in a boiling water canner for 15 minutes.  Remove from water and allow to cool.
