Cranberry Applesauce

I had just under a cup of fresh cranberries to use and I was making applesauce anyway. I tossed them in and added a bit more sugar to the recipe. The result is wonderful, and the colour is pretty magnificent if I don't say so myself.

You Will Need:

1 quart sliced apples
About 1 cup fresh cranberries
1 teaspoon lemon juice
About 1 cup sugar
About 1 cup water

Place cranberries and apples in a pot. Add the lemon juice.Start with 1 cup of water-you may need more, but it is easy enough to add. Simmer until apples are soft and cranberries have popped. Add the sugar starting with 1/2 cup and adjust to your tastes. Give it all a good mashing with a potato masher leave in some chunks of apple. Cook a few more minutes until thickened. It will get thicker upon sitting so don't cook it to death or you'll have jelly.

Cool, and then chill several hours before serving.
