Is anybody else really excited about it being the holiday season? I know from instagram that a lot of you out there are still enjoying gorgeous weather, but here in Ottawa the snow is here to stay apparently, and it REALLY feels like christmas is coming! I’ve already bought a few gifts, our tree is up, house ‘decorated’, and the seasonal recipes are well under way. Besides today’s recipe, I’d also say that the two tone teasers AND the bacon wrapped olives were QUITE festive.
Something else going on is that I have started a newsletter! I will update you weekly (most likely) to tell you about the new recipes here, along with anything else interesting enough to share, coupons or discounts as I see them, etc! The sign up form is over there —–>
This apple sauce may be one of my favorite winter creations so far. It is sweet and tangy and it really feels seasonal, too. I’ve eaten it plain just like applesauce (of course) and also as a side with pork roast! The pork with the sweet tangy applesauce really was just a winning combo. I also just appreciate it for it’s simplicity and bright color!
If you’ve been eyeing up the fresh cranberries at the grocery store, give this one a whirl! It’s a fun way to use them until we get back to turkey dinners!
- 8 macintosh apples
- 2 cups fresh cranberries
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
- peel and chop the apples, discarding the core. Put them in a large saucepan.
- add the remaining ingredients and stir.
- place on stove over medium low heat and allow to cook down, stirring occasionally, until apples are very mushy, about 25 minutes.
- use a potato masher to incorporate everything one last time and mash down any remaining apples. serve and enjoy!
