In a medium sized sauce pan, combine brown sugar, honey, water, and orange juice. Bring mixture to a boil.
Once boiling, add in salt, cinnamon, orange zest, fresh cranberries, and grated apple. Turn stove down to medium heat and cook mixture for 5 minutes. You will hear frequent popping from the cranberries.
Turn the heat to medium low and cook mixture until thickened, about 5-7 minutes. Take cranberry mixture off heat.
Mash mixture with a wood spoon or potato masher until it reaches a desired consistency.
Cool and serve.
Depending on how tart you like your cranberry sauce, you can switch up the type of apple to include. For a more sweet sauce, include a gala or opal apple. For a more tart flavor, add in a granny smith apple
You can use orange juice from concentrate, but fresh orange juice tastes best in this recipe.
