I used Gala apples instead of Granny Smith so it wouldn’t be so tart. Very yummy!! Read More

I love everything cranberry but not everyone shares cranberries tartness. The apples adds a touch of sweetness and balance to the cranberries. Thanks for a little twist on my old favorite! Read More

It was a quick recipe to make and I liked it so much better than the can stuff that no one really eats. So I thought I would try this recipe and I am eager to serve it at the table this year. It taste more like a Preserve or Jam. Read More

This is delicious! My 9 yr old grandson loves canned cranberry jelly. I worried the cranberries would be too strong for his taste but it was a hit with the little guy. My hubby liked it too. The apple retained it's own flavor which was a sweet balance to the tart cranberry. (I used Gala apples) This is an easy recipe and a definite keeper. Read More
