Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce

This sauce is truly easy to make, and it's absolutely gorgeous and delicious, and it fills the house with the most tantalizing aroma of tart berries and warm spices and sweetness.

The original recipe is called "Cranberry Applesauce," but I worried that it sounded misleading, as if it's applesauce flavored with cranberries, rather than cranberry sauce with some apples appealingly melted into it, which is what it is. It keeps well and is great on sandwiches the next day.


    2 12-ounce bags of cranberries, washed and picked over
    3 cups sugar
    3 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
    3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    scant 1/4 teaspoon allspice
    scant 1/4 teaspoon cloves


  1. Place the cranberries, sugar, and apples in a large pot, covered, over medium heat. Stir occasionally until it comes to a full simmer, then turn the heat down to low and cook, covered, for ten minutes.
  2. Turn off the heat, stir in the spices, and cool to room temperature before refrigerating.
