Cranberry Apples Relish for Thanksgiving or Whenever!




This recipe is from one of my favorite cook books Feeding the Whole Family by Cynthia Lair. I make this cranberry sauce for my roasted turkey from the time that the first cranberries are harvested until the end of the winter. Once the fresh cranberries are gone from the market I use frozen cranberries and you can't tell the difference. I often double the recipe and put 1/2 in the freezer (it keeps for 2-3 weeks)

1 1/2 cup cranberries
1 cup apples
1/2 cup currants
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup apple juice

Place cranberries, apples , currants, zest, maple syrup,salt and juice in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve at room temperature. This will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days

Great recipe! I like that there are no refined sugars. Do you cut the apple in chunks?
Thanks for sharing it at the Real Food Holidays blog carnival!
