This applesauce spiced with cinnamon and ginger, is a nice complement to any entree. While searching on the Internet for bread recipe, I happened upon one that used cranberries and apples. I adapted some of the ingredients and created this sweet-tart applesauce.—Sondra Ostheimer, Boscobel, Wisconsin

"We enjoyed this for Thanksgiving as a change from our usual cranberry sauce recipe. We especially liked the added flavor that the ginger and lemon peel gave to it."
