I wanted something different than plain cranberry sauce or cranberries with oranges to accompany meat dishes for my holiday table. I happened to have frozen strawberries and a couple of apples and a bag of cranberries on hand and the rest as they say is history. I brought the first batch to my friends' house for dinner, and they loved it...even the children.
