Apple Cranberry Sauce

I had torn this recipe out of my "Canadian Living" magazine back in 2005, but had never actually got to making it...so I decided this Thanksgiving was high time! We had visited "Siloam Orchards" (if you have a chance to ever visit this farm it's located northwest of Uxbridge and they grown heirloom apples, farm maple syrup and use 100% organic spray - I know because Greg doesn't go anaphalactic when he eats one!) and had a ton of apples so in place of a McIntosh, I used Honey Golds...delicious!!
This is great with turkey of course, but also equally as good with ham or chicken!
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 small onion, minced
1 pkg fresh cranberries
1 McIntosh apple, peeled and diced
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 cinnamon stick
Pinch, each, salt and pepper

  • In a saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; saute onion, stirring occasionally for 4 minutes.

  • Add cranberries, apple, brown sugar, vinegar, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring twice, until sauce it thick enough to mound on a spoon (approximately 12 minutes).

  • Add salt and pepper. Discard cinnamon stick and serve!
This can be served either warm or room temperature! We added some to room temperature goat's cheese and had it on baguette with some smoked pheasant and it was DELICIOUS! It adds just the right amount of sweetness to either smoky or spicy flavours.
