Cranberry Applesauce

A package of fresh cranberries sent to me by the Cranberry Institute was the perfect inspiration to come up with this simple, yet very tasty recipe. Adding a bit of orange juice and the cranberries gives basic applesauce a delicious flavor boost.


8 cups of peeled, cored and cut apples (chop into about 1 inch chunks), best to use sweet, softer varieties (I used Gala)
1 cup fresh cranberries
a few dashes of cinnamon
the juice of one fresh orange
brown sugar or maple syrup (optional)


Add all of the ingredients in a large pot on medium-low heat in a large pot and cook, stirring occasionally until apples are very tender, about 15-20 minutes. Mash with a fork until the desired consistency is reached.  If you would like to add a little sweetness, stir in 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup (or brown sugar). Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Makes 4 cups, 8 servings
