Cranberry-Tangerine Sauce With Apples & Almonds

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Roxygirl in Colorado

This is my favorite cranberry sauce from "Fruit Cookbook" by Nicole Routhier. My sister and I both love cranberry sauce and try out two new recipes every Thanksgiving. This year I'm not going to bother, since this is the only one I like to eat plain (with a spoon)! The tangerines give it a wonderful flavor, even better than oranges and combine great with the Granny apple.

This turned out very good! I halved the recipe and used an orange. I was concerned about the oranges cooked whole being bitter(from past experience with another recipe), so I peeled the orange and removed the white pith.This turned out great and had a lovely flavor. I put the whole thing through the food processor and coarsely chopped it. Thank you Roxy!
