Author Jenn Laughlin - Peas and Crayons


  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 large honeycrisp apple (2.5 cups diced - skin optional)
  • 1 medium orange (enough for 1/2 tsp of zest + 1/4 cup of juice)
  • 3 TBSP honey, plus extra to taste
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  1. Grate the zest from your orange until you have about 1/2 teaspoon of zest, then slice and squeeze out 1/4 cup of juice.
  2. Add your zest and juice along with all the above ingredients into your slow cooker, cover, and cook for 2 hours on high or 3-4 hours on low.
  3. I made a point to stir it every so often, if only for the mere excuse of licking the the spoon and filling the house with the smell of amazing cinnamon apple cranberry deliciousness.
