Usually side dishes that are on the sweet side do not interest me at all, but this particular one has passed my lips and made me a very happy person. I love it for the holiday season and have made it numerous times thanks to my sister-in-law who shared the recipe. The fresh cranberries make this a tart dish yet the apples and sugar tame down the cranberries. As I type the word tart it makes me smile. My students ask me all the time, “Why do use such large and unfamiliar words?” I really don’t think that I do. “What should I say instead of tart?” I asked. “Sour will work just fine.” They make me laugh!
This is so easy! Try it as a side for your holiday meal and you can thank me later! Enjoy.
