Cranberry Casserole

This is an old family recipe that is a Thanksgiving requirement at our house.  Sometimes we pull it out for Christmas, Easter, and 'just because' too, but we always, always have it at Thanksgiving. It's sweet and tangy and just perfect piled on a roll or a piece of turkey.  Or, as my little brother would do, get a cereal bowl, fill it up, and dig in!  And no, it's not dessert but a truly delectable side dish!


Casserole:
1 package fresh cranberries
1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
3 cups peeled and chopped apples
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 teaspoon salt


Topping:
1 stick butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup oatmeal

Combine casserole ingredients and put in a 9x13 baking dish.  Mix topping and spread over the casserole.  Bake at 325* for 1 hour.
