½cup(99g)packed dark brown sugaror pure maple syrup, or honey
½cup(120ml)apple juiceor apple cider
In a medium-sized pan, add cranberries, apples, brown sugar, apple juice, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and cinnamon stick. Stir to combine.
Bring sauce to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer, cooking until most cranberries pop, apples are tender, and the mixture has slightly thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes. Make sure to stir occasionally, about every 5 minutes.
Turn off heat and remove cinnamon stick. Taste sauce and add more sweetener if desired. If needed, add more apple juice for a thinner sauce.
Allow cooling slightly to thicken before serving.
