Cranberry Pear Sauce

One of my favorite holidays is Thanksgiving because I see all my children, grandchildren, and close friends. Last Thanksgiving, I made a simple and tasty cranberry sauce that didn’t last long on the dinner table. As a result, I decided to surprise my family by adding pears to the cranberry sauce.

These tiny pieces of pear absorb the incredible flavor of the cranberry sauce, making each bite a delightful surprise!

How to make this Sweet and Tangy Cranberry Pear Sauce:

Rinse the cranberries and remove any damaged cranberries. The pear should then be peeled and cored before being diced to the desired size. I prefer mine to be slightly larger.

Place the cranberries, pears, orange juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium saucepan. Then stir in the sugar until well combined. Bring to a boil over high heat in a saucepan. Then, to balance the flavors, add a pinch of salt. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 7 to 10 minutes or until most of the cranberries burst. This is when you begin to hear the popping sound.

Take the pot off the heat. Allow the sauce to cool completely before transferring it to a container with a tight-fitting lid. Don’t worry if you notice the sauce isn’t thick enough. The cranberry sauce will thicken further as it cools in the refrigerator.
