Spicy Cran-Apple Sauce

Delicious way to get extra vitamin C and fiber in my diet! Very high in vitamin C and fiber, this sauce is very versatile. It's great as a condiment/side to turkey, pork, fish or chicken. Also terrific dessert or snack mixed with a serving of vanilla ice cream, yogurt or as a topping on your favorite cheesecake! I like to use 2 different apples for a great taste and texture mix. Sunsweet brand has diced plums called 'Plum Amazins'. They are delicious and perfect for this recipe!

    Made for Thanksgiving last year, used the leftovers on turkey sandwiches and reheated and put over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Have already been asked to make again for this upcoming Thanksgiving and I'm excited about having leftovers! I really enjoy the extra flavor and spice this sauce has.

    excellent recipe. My family says to please always use this recipe for cranberry sauce in future. I did not have a can of pineapple so I substituted fresh peeled and chopped clementines and some water to make up for the pineapple juice. The spices were just right. I put some in a pretty glass jar for a hostess gift as we were going out to a family dinner the day I made it. It was great with our chicken dinner. I added some to my greek yogurt for breakfast. It goes with lots of things.
