Toss carrots on a second baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper. Roast potatoes on upper rack and carrots on middle rack of oven until tender, 30 minutes for potatoes and 25 minutes for carrots.

Add apple and cranberries to pan and cook, tossing, until slightly softened, 2-3 minutes. Stir in stock concentrate, ¼ tsp cinnamon (we sent more), and ¼ cup water. Simmer, stirring, until apple is very tender and mixture has a thick, saucy consistency, about 4 minutes. (TIP: If mixture seems dry, stir in another splash of water.) Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
