- 12 oz bag fresh or frozen whole cranberries
- 3 crisp red apples, peeled, cored and sliced 1-inch thick
- ground ginger to taste
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 tsp orange zest
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 3/4 to 1 cup granulated sugar*
- 1 cup water
Combine ingredients in a large pot. Bring to a simmer and cook until softened, reduced and thickened, about 30 minutes. Cool fully before serving.
*I started with a full cup of sugar and it was much too sweet, so I added another 6 oz of cranberries to bring the tartness back. So I reduced the sugar in the recipe to 3/4 cup. If it’s too tart, you can always add more sugar. Because not everyone has 5 bags of frozen cranberries in their freezer to adjust with if there is too much sugar. 😉
