Cranberry Applesauce

The kids are headed back to their first in-person learning since March next week in my area. Except for Allison. She'll still be doing remote learning from home because of my autoimmune disorder that puts me in the at risk category and we don't want to chance her bringing anything home. But for the kids that are going back, I wanted to share a delicious fall inspired lunchbox treat that is a great combination of sweet and tart and marries two of the best autumn flavors into one amazing recipe. Cranberry Applesauce, a Golden Blossom Honey recipe, is super easy to make and one I'm sure you'll return to time and time again this season.
 
 
While I did make this recipe for an inspired lunchbox filler this week, after scarfing down a few bites myself, I thought that this would be perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving meal this year. I love me some canned cranberry sauce and can't imagine a Thanksgiving without it, but if you're looking to serve nothing but fresh, this is the recipe you're going to want at your fingertips. I used my fruit and veggie chopper (affiliate link) to make quick work of the dicing, which made this a 30 minute dish from start to finish. Since it doesn't require more than a few stirs of the pot here and there, you'll have plenty of time to focus on prepping the rest of the meal. For school or holidays, you definitely need to consider making this a staple in your fall cooking!

Ingredients

1 cup cranberries
3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 cup water
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

What are some of your favorite lunchbox fillers in the fall?

  3. Love the combo of reds and greens in these photos! Our kids have been in school since September, but they are divided into four daily shifts and they go in just for two or three hours, not more. Bet Alyson is missing her friends.

    1. She is missing her friends, but she's still able to Facetime them. We also allow my best friend's daughter over because I know they are being just as cautious as we are. I do think school will go back to full virtual though because our numbers are spiking once again :(

  4. My husband keeps a big bag of walnuts/pecans/almonds as a filler in his desk at work. That’s rough for your daughter to not be able to go back, but good to be safe.

    1. Those are such great snacks to keep on hand. So healthy with the good fats packed in. I keep a Costco bag size in my freezer so they don't go stale, and I'll grab a handful here and there when I need a light snack too.

  6. While I’m not a fan of cranberry, I love the scent it fills my house with when making homemade cranberry sauce. Can you still eat it with turkey when it’s mixed with apples? I do love a good pork chop smothered in apple sauce!

    1. Yes, you could definitely eat it with turkey. It would also be a great pork chop topping!

  7. I’d love this. Cranberries are so good for you. I buy extra during this season, freeze them, and pair them up with other berries applesauce, water an ice in smoothies. So good!

  8. I am not big on the canned. In fact, I didn't know I liked cranberry sauce until I had fresh, and boy, do I now like it!! This looks delish.

  10. 30 mins and done is a win. Think school is actually going to stay open that long though? I got a feeling it will go back to virtual.

    1. I think it will go back to virtual if the numbers spike again this winter. A lot of the kids that wanted to go back to in person ended up switching back to online because safety procedures just weren't being followed properly at the school.

  12. Granny smith apple and cranberries! We can put this yummy sauce on so many things. But I found it a bit difficult to get cranberries here Theresa.. or if we have it it costs us a fortune huhu

  13. Cranberries are my favorite fall fruit, and my absolute favorite recipe is cranberry raisin pie. I will definitely try this recipe, Theresa. I just have to get some Granny Smiths. Late today I'm baking a cranberry nut loaf tea bread which I've been making since Grade 9. All my best to you!

  14. Maybe honey on toast. I think of it as fall like because I drink honey in warm tea. I like cranberries too! A lot of time I buy extra, for the freezer, so I can put them in smoothies throughout the year.
