All the ingredients set up
Add the apple cider to the pot and then add the cup of sugar on a medium heat
Bring to a boil and stir to ensure sugar is dissolved
Add the cranberries to the boiling mixture
Continue to boil for at least ten minutes ... You will hear the cranberries popping- don't be alarmed lol
Keep cooking and turn down the heat slightly
Add the apples to the mixture ...also add in the pineapple juice from the can here as well as about 6 rings of pineapple and some more spiced apple cider
Continue cooking until the apples are almost totally melted in - maybe 30 mins.. Maybe less ( you can also cook the apples separately before adding )
Apples are melting in.. You can add a pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon here for taste
Keep stirring to make sure everything is mixing well..
Put it containers for easy storage
Mmmm tasty ... Goes well with meats- ham, turkey , poultry and surprising other things lol - muffins . Brie en croute.. Cheesecake!
