Cranberry Sauce

I usually make some kind of cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving. This year I happened to pick up some lovely blackberries when I got my cranberries and thought they'd go perfectly together. I've been using my Thanksgiving cranberry sauce on everything from pancakes to yogurt.

What you need:
1 cup juice (I used a berry blend)
1 cup white sugar
1 package fresh cranberries (12 oz.)
1 apple, cored and diced
1 pear, cored and diced
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots or other dried fruit
1 cup blackberries
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

What to do:
Boil juice and sugar until the sugar dissolves.

Reduce the heat to a simmer and stir in remaining ingredients.

Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. The cranberries will burst. Remove from heat, and let cool to room temperature.
How sweet it is!
