Ingredients
  • 2 cups cranberry juice
  • 1 (6-ounce) bag sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Gala apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
Directions

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the cranberry juice, cranberries, cinnamon and sugar. Bring to a boil and let cook for 5 minutes. Add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries have softened and apples are tender, about 5 minutes.

Remove 8 ounces of the liquid to a small bowl and whisk in the cornstarch. Slowly add the cornstarch-juice mixture (slurry) to the cranberry mixture, stirring constantly. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and pour into a serving bowl. Refrigerate until thickened, about 30 minutes. Remove the cinnamon sticks and serve.

Our new favorite cranberry dish for Thanksgiving! I used to be the only person who enjoyed cranberry dishes at Thanksgiving and this year i found the perfect recipe that nearly everyone at the table enjoyed! (only a few stubborn people didn't try it :) Those who did, said they were looking forward to the Christmas dinner and having it again. Very simple to make too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
