Holiday Fruit Sauce Recipe

Holiday Fruit Sauce Recipe
Condiments are an essential part of any holiday dinner; cranberry sauce is the most popular, but there are dozens of other possibilities such as chutneys or fruit salsas. Holiday Fruit Sauce is quick and easy to make; it can be made weeks ahead, and is not only delicious, it is versatile and can be used in many different ways.
This is a great sauce to serve next to the turkey or as an accompaniment to a baked ham. Since it is very colorful, it’s a perfect sauce to serve with a Brie en Croûte, or just simply over a block of cream cheese with crackers. Holiday Fruit Sauce is a fabulous cooking sauce to add a fruited flavor to meats and chicken – try it over a ham in the slow cooker – Yum! The recipe makes six cups of sauce; each cup can be packaged in a zip bag and frozen for months, so it can be ready anytime it’s needed.
