Cranberry Apple Sauce

So this is something we do every fall, it almost became a tradition. We drive about 3 hours to Apple Orchard in Wisconsin where they sell apples in large quantities for a very affordable price. And my mom and I make lots of apple sauce for the whole winter! Kids love this sauce, and I feel good about it because I know exactly what in it, and where it came from. Also,

Cranberry is an excellent source of vitamin c that is essential for the winter season. Keeps us nice and healthy!





CRANBERRY APPLE SAUCE


You'll need:


12 large sweet apples

One 12-ounce bag of fresh cranberries 

Honey or Stevia (optional) 


Instruction:


  • Wash the apples.  Peel the skin of the apples and cut them into big chunks  

  • Disregard the core and seeds.  Add to the crockpot.  Note; if you trust your Apple source (no wax, and chemicals), you can leave the skin on and later run it through the mesh strainer  

  • Wash the cranberries and put it into the crockpot with the apples

  • Cook on high for 4 hours steering occasionally

  • Let it cool completely 

  • Puree in a high-speed blender and transfer back to the crockpot.  If you left apple skin on, then run it through the mesh strainer first, and disregard the skin.  Note; I made it both ways, and it's equally delicious, although apples with no skin makes it a lot faster

  • Depends on how sweet your apples add the sweetener if needed

  • Bring it to a boil and cook it for another 30 minutes

  • While sauce is still hot transfer it into the clean and dry jars.  As soon as you fill the jar, seal it.  Let it cool

  • Refrigerate, or keep it in a cool place 

Enjoy!
