Fall is officially here! The air is crisp, the leaves are falling and all I want to do is go apple picking! Fall is my favorite season! I love wearing my favorite puffer vest and hearing the leaves crunch beneath my feet. I get excited when the Thanksgiving issues of my favorite food magazines get delivered. I really just love Fall!
One classic Fall flavor combination that goes perfectly into a crumble or a cocktail (or in this case brisket) is cranberry apple. Like many of my recipes, this too came out of “oh my gosh, I cannot believe I have to cook again”! (I first made this recipe for Shabbos Chol Hamoed Succos, when I was cooking every other day for a whole month). I had a brisket defrosted and ready to cook, but had no plan of what to do with it. I usually throw some spices together, sear it off and cook with wine and onions. This time I had zero interest in doing anything other than putting it in the oven.
I looked through the fridge for inspiration and found a bottle of hard apple cider, I knew I had a can of cranberry sauce in the pantry and thought it would go great together! I tried my luck and amazingly enough the brisket came out SOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is so easy and takes no prep time at all! I hope you try this recipe and love it as much as I do!
