Whole Cranberry Sauce

Cranberries – Whole, fresh – one bag

In frying pan, add one cup of water and 1/2 cup or more of honey (I like my recipe a little tart).

1 or 2 McIntosh or similar apple, unpeeled

2 Mandarin Oranges – Clementines, Tangerines or one Orlando or minneola Tangelo

Walnuts – Shelled, chopped – 2 or 3 handsful (I prefer black walnuts)

Bring cranberries, honey and water to boil, reduce heat to low medium for 10 or 15 minutes.  Stir often.

While cranberries are cooking and popping, slice and add remaining ingredients, in order given above.  When all ingredients have been added, sauce will start to thicken.  Remove from heat and let stand to cool.  The walnuts will not have had much time to cook, but they don’t need it.
