6 gala, 4 honeycrisp, 1 bag of frozen cranberries, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and orange juice. No sugar. An hour of peeling, coring, stirring, mashing, and taste testing. The result: a large, lovely, cranberry applesauce.
Next time, I’d spend less time removing apple skins. They’re apparently loaded with vitamins A, C, fiber, and antioxidants, and of course I would have had that much more cranberry applesauce in my freezer. It also would have been wiser to make this recipe when the fruit I was using was in season. But it turned out well nonetheless, and is wonderful on the morning oatmeal.
