"This recipe reminds me of the cranberry apple side in the frozen dinners of old. It's a nice holiday side for those who don't care for the traditional cranberry sauce/dish. I favorite we make frequently."

"I used this recipe to replace traditional cranberry sauce for our Thanksgiving meal. It was excellent! I substituted honey for the sugar to make for a healthier dish. The only apples I had on hand were Macoun. Since I used a sweeter apple, I would cut down on the honey as the apple juice made the dish extremely sweet already."
