Chunky Spiced Applesauce

Chunky Spiced Applesauce (Adapted from CL)

10 cups cubed peeled apple
1/2 lemon
2 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

In a large bowl, add apples and cover with cold water - squeeze juice from lemon half into bowl and then place the lemon with the apples. Set aside.

In a Dutch oven, add cranberries, sugar, maple syrup, water, cinnamon and nutmeg - bring to a boil while stirring occasionally. Cook until the cranberries pop, about 3-5 minutes.

Drain apples and discard lemon half. Add apples to the pan. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until the apples are soft, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the cover and bring back to a boil - cook until very thick, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and use a potato masher to mash the apples. Scoop into a bowl and chill for about 2 hours before serving.
