Holiday Cranberry Applesauce

Holiday Cranberry Applesauce

"This spicy, bright-red applesauce boasts extra antioxidants (concentrated in the apple skins) and antibacterial activity (in the cranberry juice). As a bonus, cinnamon helps blunt sugar's ability to spike blood glucose. It's an easy alternative to traditional cranberry and apple sauces for your holiday feast."
