This is a perfect cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving or Christmas. It is a mixture of tart cranberries, sweet apple, walnuts and tangy citrus. Fresh cranberries cook very quickly ( under 15 minutes), so it is easy to make this delicious seasonal sauce. It is a quick recipe that tastes exceptional and needs only about 5-10 minutes of prep and 15 minutes to cook. Can be and should be made in the day before which frees you up Thanksgiving day.
Fresh Cranberries are tart. Many recipes call for a significant amount of white sugar to overpower the tart cranberries. This recipe has no added sugar and uses fruit and honey to sweeten up the recipe.
The final product is a rich warm red color that looks very inviting and tastes delicious. In addition , i added some chopped walnuts for some little bit of crunch and to take away from the sweetness.
