Whenever I make things with cranberries I think of my friend Adam, who loves cranberries. This recipe is a lot like my friend Denise's recipe. She serves her's on cream cheese, so I thought I'd try that. Super yummy!
*1 cup water
*3/4 cup white sugar
*2 granny smith apple, peeled, cored & chopped

*zest of lemon
*1 (12 ounce) bag fresh cranberries
*1 cup raisins
*1 cup walnuts, chopped

~Bring the heat down to a simmer.

Make it an appetizer and serve over a block of cream cheese and with crackers (ritz Christmas crackers would be pretty awesome).
