Cinnamon Apple Cranberry Sauce

Cinnamon Apple Cranberry Sauce
Cinnamon Apple Cranberry Sauce. Holy cow, next week is THANKSGIVING! Yes, gobble gobble until we can’t wobble. I will be enjoying my Mom’s cooking this year. Happy. Happy. Dance. I don’t care how ehem old I get, there’s nothing like your Mamma’s cooking is there? What I’m most looking forward to is talking her into making Turkey and Dumplings with the leftover 10 pounds of turkey that I KNOW we’ll have. My Mom has ALWAYS over cooked. I’m guessing it stems from the years of always having extra guests at our table. My Dad was forever bringing home Air Force boys with no family in town. It made for a rowdy meal (with the mandatory embarrassing stories) but we wouldn’t have had it any other way. Go Blue ; )

It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the cranberry sauce and about oh 10 other dishes but cranberry sauce is a staple. Gotta have it. I mean what would a leftover turkey sandwich be without cranberry sauce? Just sayin’. As much as I love the can (yes, I said it) I do love a good homemade version. I’m an equal opportunity cranberry sauce consumer. This homemade version takes you about 15 minutes and just 4 ingredients (we don’t count water and salt/pepper, no sense in splitting hairs). We like ours chunky,  but I know some of you aren’t big fans, all you need to do is cook it a little longer for a smoother version. Options, we love ’em.

    Moms cooking always still tastes the best. No matter what it is. She can make me a grilled cheesed and it’s seriously like the best.grilled.cheese.ever. I don’t know how the mamma’s do it! Gorgeous photos, as always!

    I did not grow up liking cranberry sauce, because my mom just opened it from a can! I love them now and would definitely go for this version!
