OK, so I noticed this year (because I have two babies and I pay attention to this stuff now) that canned cranberry sauce is chock full of high fructose corn syrup and other nasty stuff. So, first off I made a Food Network recipe on the stovetop. But, it’s kind of a pain to do when the babies are up. So, I thought, I recall a crock-pot recipe in Stephanie O’Dea’s book. I combined them and yum.
Crock-pot Cranberry Sauce
- 2 C cranberry juice
- 1 (6-ounce) bag sweetened dried cranberries
- 1 C fresh or frozen cranberries
- 1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 Gala apples, peeled, cored and diced
- 4 tsp. corn starch
Stir every hour or so. When the skin from the cranberries has softened, the cranberries will “pop” when pushed with a spoon up against the side of the crock.
Smoosh all of the cranberries. Stir well.
Heat enough for it to be warm throughout.
