Cranberry Apple Sauce/Relish

In case you didn’t get enough cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving (I can’t ever get enough!), here’s a recipe for cranberry apple relish.

 

My husband and stepson tried it with vanilla ice cream and tIMG_1684hey thought it was great.  Since I am not eating dairy right now, I’ll have to take their word for it.  I can tell you it tasted great all on it’s own!

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples, cored, peeled and diced
  • 1 (5.3 oz) package pomegranate seeds (Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 cup Zinfandel wine
  • 1 large orange, juiced
  • 5 slices of orange peel
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 4 slices peeled ginger
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 8 oz bag of cranberries

Directions:

  1. Core and peel the apples. Save the apples for the sauce.
  2. Place the apple cores and peels in a medium saucepan with everything but the cranberries; bring to a boil over high heat.IMG_1679
  3. Reduce heat to medium and cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Dice the apples while the sauce is simmering.

  7. Reduce heat to low; simmer 15 to 30 minutes; until mixture is the desired thickness.
