Cherry-Cranberry Sauce

A fresh take on cranberry sauce that is perfect for the holidays!

Chelan Fresh sponsored this recipe for Cherry-Cranberry Sauce with us and we want to share it with you! 
Freeze cherries during the cherry season and save them for use during the holiday season. Cherry-Cranberry Sauce is a welcome change to the traditional cranberry sauce typically found on the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner table. It is bright, sweet, and full of holiday spices like nutmeg and cinnamon.
Cherry-Cranberry Sauce can also be served on top of brie. Its deep red color against the white brie is as striking as it is delicious. Or, serve this sauce on top of french toast for a special breakfast experience.
