Easy cranberry sauce flavored with apple cider, diced apple and maple syrup.



Two 12-oz bags fresh cranberries

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or replace with 1/2 cup additional granulated sugar)

1 small sweet apple (not granny smith) peeled and finely diced

3/4 cup apple cider plus more, if needed

1 cinnamon stick



  1. Place all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes, until the sauce has thickened and the apples are tender. Taste it, if you'd like it sweeter add more sugar or maple syrup and cook a little longer.
  2. Remove the cinnamon stick.  Cool slightly, then refrigerate. Once chilled the sauce will thicken up. If you'd like it thinner you can stir in additional apple cider (I usually add a couple tablespoons) to thin it out and increase the cider flavor.
