Cranberry Orange Apple Sauce is perfect paired with any holiday meal. Fresh cranberries and orange really make this sauce burst with flavor.
  • 1 12oz bag of cranberries, fresh or frozen will work
  • Zest from one medium sized orange. I used a navel orange.
  • Juice from one medium sized orange. Just use the one you zested.
  • ⅓ C light brown sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ½ C unsweetened applesauce
  1. Place all ingredients in a medium sized saucepan. Heat over medium heat and simmer until the cranberries begin to pop, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. When the cranberries start to pop and soften, gently mash with a wooden spoon.
  2. Serve in a decorative bowl, if serving with your holiday meal.
Store in an airtight container for up to one week in a refrigerator.
