  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings
  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins

Use only pure maple syrup; imitation and diluted syrups will give the sauce an ersatz flavor.


1 12-ounce bag fresh cranberries
3/4cup pure maple syrup
1cup apple cider or juice
1large apple, peeled and cut in 1/4-inch pieces
1/3cup chopped walnuts


  1. Combine cranberries, maple syrup and apple cider in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes or until cranberries burst and sauce is thick and chunky.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in apple and walnuts. Chill sauce until cold and thick, or up to three days before serving.
