Cranberry Applesauce

(Makes about 2 cups (4 servings))

Traditional cranberry sauce usually calls for a 2:1 ratio of berries to sugar.
Adding another sweet fruit such as apples helps cut down on the amount of sugar without compromising the taste.
Fruit sweetener, Sucanat, or unrefined organic sugar can be found in natural foods stores.

  • 2 cups peeled sliced apples (use a sweet tart apple such as Jonagold, Granny Smith, or McIntosh)
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fruit sweetener or organic sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

Cook all ingredients in a saucepan until fruit is tender—about 5 to 7 minutes.
Purée 2 cups at a time in a blender.
Return to saucepan and cook until mixture thickens to consistency you desire.
