Cranberry Applesauce

We've been trying to cut back on our dessert consumption - this did the trick for a somewhat healthy, but sweet and tart dessert!

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/8 tsp. salt
1 cup fresh cranberries
4 cups unsweetened applesauce

Bring the sugar, water, and salt to a boil in a stainless steel saucepan. Add the cranberries and simmer for 10 minutes over med-low heat. Let cool.

Transfer the cranberry sauce and applesauce to a blender, and blend thoroughly.
Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or sour cream.
Store leftovers in the fridge.
