prep time: 5 minutes
cook time: 15 minutes
yield: serves 6
- 2 honey crisp applies, diced with skin on
- 3 strips of pancetta, diced and browned
- 1 8oz bag cranberries, fresh or frozen
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 1 cup unfiltered apple juice or cider
- salt and pepper to taste
Dice up a sweet, juicy apple with the skin on. Honey crisp would be great for this.
Brown some pancetta in a saucepan with 1 tsp olive oil. Add in the apple and cranberries. Toss to coat with the rendered bacon.
Pour in white wine and apple juice or non-spiced cider. If you’re a clove person, this would be a good place to use just the slightest hint of clove for an added layer of flavor.
Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook until thick. You may want to use a hand-held potato masher to slightly macerate the fruit once it’s cooked. Adjust with salt and pepper by taste. Serve as an accompaniment for the turkey.
