Looking for an alternative to the canned cranberry sauce served with your Thanksgiving meal? Here’s a healthy recipe for cranberry sauce that’s a snap to prepare. It’s a Cranberry Apple Compote that is sure to have your guests asking for seconds, and even thirds!
- 2 medium apples
- 6 oz. of fresh cranberries (half a 12 oz. package)
- 1 cup of apple cider
- Juice from 1 lemon
- 1 cup of sucanat
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- pinch of salt
Peel, core and slice your apples. I use my Back To Basics Peeler, because it makes it so easy!
Wash your cranberries with cool water, then mix together all ingredients in a medium sauce pan.
Bring to a boil and reduce heat.
Cover partially and simmer for 20 minutes or until thickened.
Now you have a delicious and healthy version of a Thanksgiving side that usually just comes from a can.
