- 2 large apples, peeled, seeded and sliced*
- about 20 whole raw cranberries, picked over and rinsed
- few dashes ground cinnamon
- raw honey to taste
- about 1/2 cup water to blend
Place sliced apples, cranberries and cinnamon in a blender. Add enough water to blend until smooth to applesauce consistency (start on low speed and work up). Taste and add honey, if desired. Blend again briefly.
*Pears can be substituted for apples; no need to peel, if organic. (Organic apples, however, should be peeled because the peel is tougher and does not blend well.)
This festive pink “sauce” is delicious as a dessert with yogurt or ice cream on top, or as a condiment with meat or vegetables. It stores in the refrigerator for 3-4 days (but seldom lasts that long!).
