DIRECTIONS

  • Put orange juice, orange rind and lemon juice in stockpot or 6-1/2-quart pot.
  • Peel, core and slice one apple at a time, adding slices to pot and tossing slices in the liquid (to prevent browning).
  • Peel, core and slice one pear at a time, adding slices to pot and tossing slices in the liquid.
  • Add cranberries and honey and mix well. Immerse the cinnamon stick in the middle.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer until apples are very soft, about 15-20 minutes. Remove the cinnamon stick and discard.
  • If using a Vitamix, the mixture does not need to cool before pureeing; otherwise, let mixture cool 20 minutes before pureeing in batches to desired consistency.
