a recipe for you

i love this recipe.  omar loves it.  the boys love it.  and unlike many cranberry relishes it is void of any jell-o products, so if you just blur your eyes over the amount of sugar it almost seems like it is good for you.  like you are doing a disservice to yourself if you aren’t eating it.

apple cranberry sauce

1 bag of fresh cranberries
1 granny smith apple, peeled and diced
3/4 c sugar (i’m still trying to figure out how little i can get away with putting in it)
1.5 tsp fresh grated ginger
juice of one orange (about 1/4 c)
zest of one orange
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt

combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  lower heat and simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes, or until about half the cranberries have popped.  remove from heat and cool.
