Hard Cranberry Sauce (with apple)

Hard Cranberry Sauce (with apple)

2.5 bags of fresh/frozen cranberries

2 large granny smith apples (can sub pears)
1 bottle (12 oz) hard cider – wood chuck, etc
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
100 drops cinnamon stevia / 1 c. granular splenda (or sugar or brown sugar if you aren’t worried about carbs)
1 Tbsp fresh grated ginger
Optional: Juice of one orange or lime

Wash cranberries.  Peel and dice apples ( I use a peeler/corer…) Put everything in a big pot (I use a 6.5 qt dutch oven). Heat over medium until it simmers, stirring every 10 minutes or so. Allow to simmer for approximately 1 hour, or until all the cranberries pop and the sauce thickens. 

Make approximately 8 cups of sauce. Freezes beautifully. Perfect as a sauce, a jam or jelly, or a pie filling! MMMMMMM….
