If you like cranberries, this is for you! The tart cranberries added to the sweet fruit and spices leave you wanting more! It took me back several years and reminded me of the rhubarb pies my grandmother used to make – minus all the sugar that she put in them!! After the first taste, my boys immediately thought it needed more sugar, not me!
- 2 cups sliced apples
- 2 cups sliced pears
- 1 bag or 1 1/2 cup fresh cranberries
- 1 can of chunk pineapple (save the juice)
- Juice from 1 lemon
- 1 Tablespoon Honey or Agave
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
- 1/3 cup Coconut Sugar (or regular sugar)
- 1/2 stick melted butter
- 1/3 cup Walnuts (if desired)
Preheat the over to 300°.
Slice the apples and pears. Mix the apples, pears, pineapple and cranberries in a large bowl. Squeeze the juice of the lemon over the fruit.
In a separate bowl, mix the melted butter, honey, sugar, spices and half of the saved pineapple juice. Pour half of that mixture over the fruit and mix. Pour the balance of the mixture over the top.
Bake 1 hr on 300°. I love the way this makes my kitchen smell…. like apple cider.
This can be eaten for breakfast, brunch, as a side dish or dessert. Enjoy!
