Spiced Cran-Apple Sauce
12 oz fresh or frozen cranberries
1 large or 2 medium sweet cooking apples, such as Rome Beauty or McIntosh, peeled, cored, and finely chopped
|This looks like tomato sauce, but I promise it's cranberries|
peel of half an orange, removed with a vegetable peeler
5 whole cloves
2 green cardamom pods, lightly cracked open
1 5-inch long piece of cinnamon stick
1/3 cup light agave nectar
1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the berries, apple, and cider and bring to a simmer.
2. Stick the cloves into the orange peel.
3. Once the berries start to pop open, submerge the orange peel, cardamom, and cinnamon. Lower the heat to medium low and allow the sauce to cook until all the berries are popped and the apple is completely soft, about 15-20 minutes.
4. Stir in the agave nectar and remove the sauce from heat. Once it has completely cooled, chill in the refrigerator. Remove the spices and orange peel before serving.
