Cranberries and apples are amazing together. The perfect sweet and tart combination. This one is great for both latkes and turkey and therefore is part of our Thanksgivvukah menu.
6 pounds apples, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices (try a combination of Gala, Granny Smith, or any local apples you can find)
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
2 cinnamon sticks
6 -7 tablespoons sugar
1-1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
In a large saucepan, combine apples, cranberries, cinnamon stick, sugar, and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender, 30 to 35 minutes. (If sauce begins to stick to the bottom of the pan, add 2 to 4 tablespoons more water.) Stir in lemon juice.
