Apple Sauce with Cranberries

I went to a latke cooking class this past fall with a few of my friends. It was at the Spertus Institute in Chicago. Chef Laura Frankel showed us how to make amazing latkes and how to make homemade apple sauce. Who knew it was so easy to make apple sauce. I will never buy jarred apple sauce again. I will post the latke recipe soon! oh they are so good!

6 granny smith apples
1 cup cranberries - fresh or frozen
1/2 cup cranberry juice or apple juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1-2 teaspoons grated ginger
1/4 cup sugar

Peel, core and cut the apples into medium size pieces.

Grate some ginger. I use a microplane to make it really fine.

Place all the ingredients in a small pan, bring to a boil and then lower heat. Simmer until all the ingredients have cooked down, about 20-25 minutes. Stir it every so often. Soon you will have delicious homemade apple sauce. It is great for mid day snacks!
