This is about as easy as home made sauce gets. Just toss some cranberries, apples and pears into a pan, add a little sugar and spice, then simmer to perfection.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 12 ounces fresh cranberries
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 cups Gala or Rome apples, peeled and chopped coarsely
- 2 Bartlett pears, peeled and chopped coarsely
- 4 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
- 4 teaspoons cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until cranberries pop, 25-30 minutes. Cool to room temperature or chill.
