Vanilla-Spiced Cranberry-Apple Sauce
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Yield: About 3 cups
  • 12 oz (340 g or about 3 heaping cups) fresh cranberries, rinsed
  • 2 medium crisp, sweet apples, cored and diced (not peeled)
  • ½ cup (100 g) sugar
  • 1 cup (240 ml) apple cider
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • ¾ teaspoon pure vanilla bean paste
  1. Add all ingredients except the vanilla bean paste to a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Once boiling, turn the heat down slightly so it doesn’t boil over. Cover the pot and simmer until the cranberries pop and the sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the vanilla bean paste.
  3. Store in a covered container in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
