Cranberry Applesauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Chef Dudo

Got this in an e-mail some time ago. I think it originated in Gourmet. I use it as a side with meat and also as a dessert with a little ice cream.

I absolutely loooove this applesauce! I can't stop eating it. I like cranberries, but not raw, and I had some I needed to get rid of. Now, I want to stock up on cranberries so I can make this again and again! This will be a regular at our house--thanks so much for posting!
