In our house, cranberry sauce is a must for a Thanksgiving turkey, and this recipe is very flavorful. The sweet apples provide a nice balance to the tart cranberries, and you can sense the overtones of the ginger but it doesn’t overwhelm. And making this couldn’t be easier, you just put all the ingredients in the pot and simmer for 30 minutes then let it get cold. I make this a day or two before and let it chill in the refrigerator.

- 1 (12-ounce/340 g) bag fresh or frozen whole cranberries,
- 2 crisp sweet red apples, peeled, cored and sliced 1-inch thick

- 1/2 cup (120 ml) apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup (175 g) granulated sugar
- 1 cup (240 ml) water
- Add ingredients to a large pot and simmer for about 30 minutes. The mixture will soften, reduce and thicken. Cool completely before serving. Keep covered in the refrigerator.
