Cranapple Crunch

What Thanksgiving is complete without cranberry sauce?  But why would I make cranberry sauce if I didn't have a turkey?  Such a dilemna!  Luckily, I have an amazing friend who gave me the suggestion for a cranberry casserole and sent a family recipe to try!  This was delicious.

Cranapple Crunch (from the Green family)


6 Cups tart apples
4 Cups fresh cranberries
2 Cups white sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
2 Cups brown sugar – packed
2 Cups quick oatmeal
2/3 Cup butter

1. Preheat oven to 325F.  Combine apples, cranberries, sugar, lemon juice and salt in bowl.
2. Turn into large, shallow baking dish.
3. Combine brown sugar and oatmeal.
4. Cut in butter until mixture is crunchy.
5. Place on top of fruit mixture and bake for 1 hour.
6. Cool for 45 minutes for top to absorb juices.
7. Serve warm or reheat to serve hot.
