Cran-Apple Sauce

I love homemade cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving, but I had never really thought about bottling it... then as I was checking out some apple canning recipes I came across a recipe for apple cranberry sauce. Yum! It looks so pretty in the jars and tastes great.  It uses up apples and is great at Thanksgiving time!

The red color is so pretty in the jars!

Cran-Apple Sauce

20 apples
2 12 oz bags fresh cranberries
2 c. sugar
3 c. apple juice

Wash fruit. Sort berries. Peel, core and finely chop apples. Mix all ingredients in a large pot with lid. Cook for 5 minutes covered, stirring often. Remove lid and boil for 20 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes. Keep hot while filling sterilized pint jars. Process 15 minutes. Makes 7 pints.
