This month’s Recipe Redux challenge invites members to create new slow cooker recipes. If you’re hosting a crowd for Thanksgiving, you’ll appreciate keeping the stove top free by making this slow cooker cranberry sauce. These flavors are wonderful together, and the apple helps to thicken the sauce because it naturally contains pectin. I use maple syrup to sweeten this sauce, but honey works well too.
