Cranberry-Pear-Sauce

One of the most important holidays in my household is Thanksgiving. This is one of my favorite holidays because I have all my kids, grandchildren, and some dear friends sitting at the table. Last Thanksgiving, I made a simple and flavorful cranberry sauce that didn’t last on the dinner table. Because of this, I decided to surprise my family by kicking the cranberry sauce up a notch with pears.

These little pieces of pear absorb the amazing flavor of the cranberry sauce making it a delightful surprise with every bite!

How to make this Sweet and Tangy Cranberry Pear Sauce:

 Rinse the cranberries and pick out and discard any damaged cranberries. Then, peel and core the pear. Diced it to your desired size. I like mine to be a little bit big.

In a medium saucepan place the cranberries, pears, orange juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Then add the sugar and stir to combine. Place on the stove over high heat and bring to a boil. Then add a pinch of salt to balance the flavors. Lower the heat and simmer for about 7 to 10 minutes until most of the cranberries burst. This is when you start hearing the popping sound.

 Remove the pot from the stove. Let the sauce cool completely, then transfer to a container with a sealed lid. If you notice the sauce is not thick enough, no worries, the cranberry sauce will continue thickening as it cools in the refrigerator. Cranberry-Sauce
