Total Time

My grandson Geoff likes hot applesauce, so I've come up with one that looks as good as it tastes. It could also be served in a tall dessert dish, garnished with a cinnamon stick. —Sue Peterson, Newville, Pennsylvania


  • 3 pounds apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 3/4 cup cranberry juice
  • 4 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Additional ground cinnamon, optional


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the apples, cranberries, juice, brown sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat.
  2. Mash until sauce is desired consistency. Serve warm or cold. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired.
