I am a big fan of cranberries and love using them around the holidays! In fact the only cranberries I DON'T like are the canned glob that so many people serve around Thanksgiving. Here are 3 different recipes using cranberries!

My cranberry apple homemade sauce is always a big hit fit meats! It provides a great combination of sweet and bitter.

Start by peeling and cubing 2 apples.

In the mean time, add a bag of cranberries and a cup of apple cider to a medium sized pot on low heat. (apple juice will work as well) I usually like to add 1/4 cup of maple syrup at this part.

Add the apples and squeeze half a lemon.

Simmer on low heat for 20 minutes.

Put in a jar and cool for an hour.

Me second cranberry concoction is a spread that goes well with crackers or in a drink, the possibilities are endless!

Use a food processor or blender with 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup water and blend till smooth.

This also goes well in a holiday beverage!

I also like blending this with half a jalapeno and pouring it on cream cheese to be served with crackers.
