Cranberry Apple Sauce

I realized last night as I was trying to fall asleep that I hadn't yet planned a menu for Thanksgiving.  Since we won't be able to spend time with family in CO or KY, we are just having a low key holiday here.  We will run in a Turkey Trot in the morning, and then eat some turkey and fixin' later.

As I was laying there I got to to thinking of this Cranberry Chutney/Sauce that I made three years ago.  I looked all over my house and the internet to find it, until finally coming across it.  I had remembered that I omitted something out of the recipe...but when I came across it tonight, I realized I had left out a few things.  They didn't seem to go with teh characteristic that I like in my sauce...but I suppose that's what made it more of a chutney recipe?  Anyway, here's a link to the original recipe from Good Housekeeping (aka my favorite magazine!) and I will put my version below.  It's worth a try, it's the perfect balance of sweet, sour and refreshing with that coriander! :)

Cranberry Apple Sauce
1.5 c. Water
1 c. Ssugar
2 T. Apple Cider Vinegar
1 t. Coriander seeds
3 Medium Gala Apples, peeled and chopped
1 bag Cranberries

In a large saucepan stir together water, sugar, vinegar and coriander seeds until sugar dissolves.  Heat to boiling and then add apples.  Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 25 minutes or until apples are tender.  Add cranberries and simmer for another 10 minutes or until about half of cranberries pop.  Stirring occasionally.  Serve warm or cool.
