Cranberry-Orange Applesauce

Source: Everyday Food, January/February 2012

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 pounds apples, such as McIntosh, Gala, and Braeburn
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice (from 2 to 3 oranges)
  • 2 tablespoons dark-brown sugar

Directions

  1. Peel, core, and slice apples.

  2. In a large pot, bring apples, cranberries, orange juice, and 1/2 cup water to a boil over high. Reduce heat and simmer until apples are very soft and falling apart, 25 to 30 minutes.

  3. Mash with a potato masher or pulse in a food processor until smooth with small chunks remaining. Add sugar.

  4. Let cool, then transfer applesauce to airtight containers.

Cook's Notes

Refrigerate applesauce up to 5 days, or freeze up to 2 months.
