add in the chopped apples Add cored and chopped apples. We prefer to use a hard red apple like Jazz, McIntosh, or Gala.
Optional: add craisins (interesting if you have leftovers watch as the craisins become cranberries again) Add 5 oz Craisin and cook over medium-high heat for an additional 10 minute to blend flavor thoroughly.
