This fresh alternative to canned cranberry sauce is flecked with festive green pistachios and flavored with cinnamon and nutmeg. Serve it with turkey (of course!), or pan-fried pork chops.


  • 8 ounces fresh cranberries (2 cups)
  • 1 medium sweet crisp apple (such as Braeburn, Gala, Pink Lady, Honey Crisp or Jazz), cored and cut up
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg*
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted, salted pistachios


  1. In a food processor, combine cranberries, apple, brown sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Cover and pulse with several on/off turns until finely chopped. Cover and chill at least 1 hour before serving, or chill up to 2 days. Stir in pistachios before serving.


  • * If you use purchased ground nutmeg, decrease to 1/8 teaspoon.
