We’ve had a plethora of pears this season so it seemed only right to incorporate them into cranberry sauce. For other cranberry sauce ideas from mulled wine to ginger spiced go here.

Cranberry Sauce with Pears

  • 12 ounces cranberries
  • 2 cups unpeeled pears, cored and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Combine all ingredients in a 4-quart sauce pan. Set over medium heat and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes or until cranberries have burst and the sauce is thickened. This may take longer if using frozen berries. Let sauce cool before serving.

    I think pears are an under used fruit. I’m sure your sauce is terrific.
