Homemade Thanksgiving Cranberry Applesauce


This is a chunky sauce.

6 cups chopped and peeled apples
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1 cup water
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons red hot candies
1 teas ground cinnamon
1.8 teas ground nutmeg

In large saucepan, combine apples, cranberries and water. Cook over medium heat until berries pop, about 15 minutes. Reduce heat, and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes, or until apples are tender. Add raisins, brown sugar, red-hots, cinnamon and nutmeg. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes or until candies are dissolved. Simmer longer if you want a softer texture. Serve warm or refrigerate until serving. Makes 5 cups.
