Cranberry Apple Sauce

Prep time: 5 min • Cook time: 25 min • Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 1 pound cranberries
  • 1 ½ cup filtered water
  • 1 Fuji apple, cored and cut into a ¼ “dice
  • 1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • ¾ - 1 cup honey, to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  1. Rinse the cranberries with cold water and drain in a colander.
  2. Place the cranberries in a heavy pot over medium heat and add the filtered water;  Bring it to a boil.  The cranberries will soften and pop open when they are cooked.
  3. Adjust the heat a little lower.
  4. Stir in all the remaining ingredients.  Stir well to combine.
  5. Simmer for approximately 11 - 15 minutes or until the apples have softened a little.
  6. Remove from the heat and let the sauce cool for 30 minutes before serving.  The sauce tastes the best if it’s made a day or 2 before serving
