CRANBERRIES!!! Cranberry-apple juice and cran-apple sauce

I got 5 lbs of cranberries with my CSA distribution last night.  These are fresh cranberries,1 so I have to move quickly, or else put them all in the dehydrator.  I don’t recall ever having had fresh cranberries before, so this is exciting.

Tonight, I made an apple-cranberry cocktail, to start.

  • 3 apples
  • 1/2 C cranberrries

Process through the Champion juicer.

I got about 1 pt of juice and about 1 cup of “ cran-apple sauce”

The juice was very sweet, tasting mostly of apples.

Later in the evening, I went back and put @ 2 C cranberries into the juicer with three big apples.

This came out tart (I liked it) and the “cranapple sauce was quite tart – I added about a T of cinnamon, and it tasted good to me (it is sitting in the refrigerator, mulling, for tomorrow’s lunch.
