Apple Ginger Cranberry Sauce

Apple Ginger Cranberry Sauce

1 (12 oz) bag fresh cranberries, picked over
2 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp (1/4 c) agave nectar
2 apples (golden delicious, gala, or another sweet variety)
10 oz unsweetened apple juice
1 to 2 inches fresh ginger, grated
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp glazed orange or lemon zest

Bring all ingredients to a boil, lower heat. Cook on low until all berries burst. Use a stick blender partially blend the mixture, leaving some chunks for texture. Continue cooking on low until desired thickness. 

Note: you may find this a bit tart if so add more sugar or agave to your liking.
