Cranberry Apple Sauce

I love Thanksgiving for a multitude of things, but eating is my hobby and food is high on the list. It’s almost embarrassing the feast we have planned for the 4 of us this year. Smoked Turkey, cornbread stuffing, sweet potato casserole, etc. My mothers always found new recipes to try on Thanksgiving, but I always go back to this Cranberry Sauce recipe. The apples make it the perfect combination of sweet and tart. I hope you enjoy it also. Have a blessed Thanksgiving! Psalm 118:1

I tend to geek out on Thanksgiving and plan for months. I write list for everything, test to see how many dishes I can fit in my oven, have a binder of old recipes, table settings that include menus, etc. One of my favorite lists for the day of Thanksgiving includes, recipes sources, dish requirements, prep, time to go in the oven, etc. If you are interested in it, click on this link for a free printable.
