Cranberry Sauce gone Cranapplepom Sauce

Cranapplepom Sauce - 578 Washington St #3, Brighton, MA

I love cranberry sauce, but I wanted it to be different. I wanted there to be more and I wanted there to be more than just cranberries. Apple sauce could make it good. Pomegranate seeds could make it better! Here goes....

1 12oz package of fresh cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 1/2 cup apple sauce
3 tbs pomegranate seeds
grapefruit/orange/lemon zest

Boil 1 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar, stirring to dissolve. Add in cranberries and return to a boil. Once it's boiling again, reduce to simmer for 10 minutes or so. At this point sprinkle in some cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. I really have no idea how much. Either way... it'll spell amazing. Once all the cranberries seem  to have popped/after around 10 minutes, remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. The sauce will thicken up on its own. At any point, add in 3 tbs pomegranate seeds and apple sauce. Also add some grapefruit/orange/lemon zest if you wish.  The pomegranate seeds add a tiny little crunch with a different burst of flavor. The zest adds a little sweet yet sour.
