Menu Monday: Cranberry applesauce

A good way to use your stocks of cranberries and apples. We had this at Thanksgiving this year instead of traditional cranberry sauce.

5 apples (we like Jonathan for the tartness) peeled and sliced
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries (don't worry about cutting them up)
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated orange peel

Combine apples, cranberries and water in a saucepan, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover. Simmer about a half hour, stirring occasionally, until apples are soft.
Stir in sugar and orange peel. Remove from heat and mash with a potato masher. Should be slightly chunky. If a bit tart, add another tablespoon of sugar.
