If you wish to make more or less cranberry apple sauce, simply double, triple, or halve the recipe below.
*if you are making this recipe for a young child, leave out the spices.
If you prefer less spicy sauce, then leave the spices out as well.
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
14 medium size apples (any apple type suitable for cooking)
2/3 cup granulated sugar, or artificial sweetener, more or less as desired
2/3 cup apple juice
*1/4 tsp. ground mace, optional (I left this out)
*1/16 tsp. ground coriander, optional (I left this out)
Peel, core, slice and coarsely chop the apples.
In a large pan (I use a "Dutch Oven" pan), combine all the ingredients.
Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.
When the mixture boils, reduce heat to medium-low and allow the fruit mixture to simmer (with the pan lid ajar) for about 15 minutes, or until the apples are tender.
Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
Puree the mixture in a blender until a smooth consistency is reached.
Makes about 8 cups of Cranberry Apple Sauce.
Store the cooled fruit sauce in the refrigerator.
If you wish to freeze the sauce, allow it to cool and transfer the sauce to air-tight freezer safe containers or sealable bags, and freeze for up to one year.
If you wish to can the sauce, transfer the applesauce to the glass jars as per canning guidelines and process the jars in a boiling-water canner as follows:
At altitudes of 0 - 1,000 feet - Quarts - 20 minutes / Pints - 15 minutes
At altitudes of 1,001 - 3,000 feet - Quarts - 25 minutes / Pints - 20 minutes
At altitudes of 3,001 - 6,000 feet - Quarts - 30 minutes / Pints - 20 minutes

Or process as per the Canner instructions and recommendations or directions.
