Apple Cranberry Sauce

My children love apple sauce and so do I.  I recently discovered how easy it is to make at home!  The best part about making applesauce on your own stovetop is that you can add in any ingredients you want.  Now that it is November, I was noticing fresh cranberries available in mass quantities at the grocery store so I had to pick some up.  This past weekend we had friends and their children over for dinner – we grilled some pork tenderloin, steamed some butternut squash and lima beans, and cooked up some delicious apple cranberry sauce to serve on the side.  The pinkish apple cranberry sauce was devoured!  (The color was almost as much of a hit as the taste.)  I will definitely make this again – maybe for Thanksgiving (maybe sooner).
Apples (peeled and diced)
Cranberries (a handful – fresh)
Honey (maybe 1/4 cup or so)
Combine apples, cranberries, and honey in a heavy bottomed pot over medium high heat.  Stir.  Once the apples start getting soft I turn the heat down to medium.  Keep stirring and crushing the apples.  When the apple sauce looks and tastes the way you like it, turn off the heat.  Serve warm or cold.  Enjoy!
