Original recipe was found in Family Fun magazine. (surprised by the number of excellent recipes in there!) I've basically halved it here. As stated by FF: "more personality and fresh flavor-with a whisper of apple" The pectin naturally found in apples helps the sauce to gel. Our family liked it very much.

Made this with raw apple cider & my last bag of frozen cranberries! I used a generous tablespoon of minced orange zest ~ Very nice tasting sauce, although another time I want to try it mixed with a pint or so of homemade chunky applesauce!
