I originally made this to pair with a feta/walnut/apple stuffed pork tenderloin. Now, I make this Chunky Cranberry Apple Sauce four to five times per year (or until my stash of frozen cranberries runs out). It is just the right amount of sweet and tart with the slightest hint of spice from the cinnamon and nutmeg.
2 packages of fresh cranberries
2 cups of water
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
2 dashes of ground nutmeg
2 to 3 Tablespoons of Agave or Maple Syrup (optional)
Cranberries: rinse, drain, remove bruised fruit and stems.
Apples: peel, core and dice.Bring water and sugar to a boil, add cranberries, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sometimes I add a little agave or maple syrup and sometimes I don't bother with the extra calories. Your choice. Cook cranberries for 10 minutes. Add diced apples to the cranberry mixture. Cover and cook for another 25 minutes.
