I share this every Thanksgiving...

and this Thanksgiving is no different.

Here's a homemade cranberry sauce recipe that is so delicious, you will add it to your Thanksgiving menu from now on.



1 C - Apple cider or Apple juice
1/2 C - Sugar
1/3 C - Maple Syrup
3 ~ Medium cooking apples (like Jonathan) peeled, cored and chopped into small chunks.
1 - 12 oz pkg fresh cranberries (cleaned and rinsed)
1/2 tsp - Apple pie spice
1/4 tsp - Vanilla

In large saucepan combine apple juice, sugar and syrup. Bring to a boil. Add apples; cook, covered over medium heat for 5 minutes. Stir in cranberries and apple pie spice. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes or until apples are soft and cranberries have popped, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Cool completely at room temp. Cover and chill for at least three hours or up to a week before serving.


Makes almost 4 cups and your home will smell heavenly!!

I was sporting the Star Wars Princess Leia hairdo l-o-n-g before she ever did!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
