I have decided that cranberries are my absolute favorite fruit. I just love them, whether it's jellied cranberries at Thanksgiving, dried cranberries in a salad, or cranberries in desserts. They're sweet and tangy and just delicious! My boys also have a love of cranberries and between the both of them, they can go through a bag of dried cranberries very quickly! With cranberries being in season now, I wanted to share some yummy cranberry recipes with you!
Cranberry Jellies Candy (made with cranberry juice)
and….here is my version of my sister-in-law's recipe for Cranberry Apple Casserole:
4 cups of peeled and chopped apples (about 3 large)
2 cups fresh cranberries washed and drained well
2 TBLS flour
1 cup sugar
In large mixing bowl, mix apples and cranberries with the 2 Tbls flour to coat. Add the sugar and mix well. Pour into a greased 9 X 13 casserole dish.
3 pkts cinnamon and spice instant oatmeal OR one cup of steel cut or regular oats and a couple of dashes of cinnamon
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans (or more if you prefer)
1 stick melted butter
Mix the oatmeal, brown sugar, flour and chopped pecans well. Add melted butter and stir until all moist and blended. Spoon on top of the apple cranberry mixture.
Bake uncovered in 350 oven until bubbly…about 30-45 minutes.
