Author Notes

This cranberry sauce is sweetened with apple cider and a touch of maple syrup, rather than conventional sugar, for a healthier but flavorful Thanksgiving condiment. —c.levine

I,too, like that you put those three together. It would be nice with some pumpkin biscuits. I was wondering if you have ever tried canning it?

Cranberries, apple cider, and maple? They're all of my favorite New England flavors.

Indeed ... now if only there was a way to include pumpkin we'd have all the bases covered.
