Chunky Apple-Rhubarb Sauce with Dried Cranberries

Sweet, savory and tart, this sauce is a natural complement to roasted pork or chicken.

Serves 4

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 25 min.


  • 1 large green apple, such as Granny Smith, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups diced rhubarb, (2-3 stalks)
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 2 tablespoon dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 1/4-inch-t ginger, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar, or to taste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Combine apple, rhubarb, onion, apple juice, cranberries, honey and ginger in a medium saucepan. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the rhubarb is soft and the apple is tender but not mushy, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in vinegar. Remove the ginger; serve the sauce warm, at room temperature or chilled.
