Cranberry Sauce

This cranberry sauce is not your ordinary cranberry sauce.  The taste is derived not only from the cranberries but several different fruits; yet the cranberry taste still prevails.  I got my idea from a couple different recipes.Cranberry Sauce

1 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1 (12 oz) package fresh cranberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1 apple – peeled, cored, and diced fine
1 pear – peeled, cored, and diced fine
1 cup dried mixed berries
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

Clean and sort the cranberries, discarding green and soft ones.  In a medium saucepan, combine the water and sugar, bring to a boil until the sugar dissolves.  Reduce the heat to a simmer and stir in the cranberries, orange juice, apple, pear, dried berries, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occassionally, until the cranberries burst.  Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.
