This will be my 2nd year making this cranberry pear sauce. I love it and family asks for the recipe.

I don’t like regular canned cranberry sauce so this recipe are for those that don’t like cranberry sauce in a can either.  The pears in this thanksgiving side dish is the secret ingredient for me.

Instead, it gets its sweetness naturally from ripe pears and a touch of real maple syrup. Once you try this recipe, you’ll never look at store-bought cranberry sauce the same.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Cooling Time 20 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 12 oz. fresh cranberries
  • 2 medium ripe pears peeled and diced
  • 2 t. fresh ginger peeled and grated
  • 3 T. fresh rosemary leaves finely diced
  • 3 T. real maple syrup
  • ¾ c. water
  • Sea salt to taste

Instructions

  • Add cranberries, pear, ginger, rosemary leaves, maple syrup, and water to a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture starts to boil and the cranberries burst open, approximately 5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for another 5-10 minutes. While cooking, mash the cranberries and pears with a wooden spoon. Season with a pinch of sea salt and stir to combine.
  • Remove from heat and allow sauce to cool for 15-20 minutes before checking the consistency. Add a little water if the sauce is too thick. Taste and add more maple syrup for a sweeter sauce, if desired.
  • Optional: For a smoother sauce, blend one-half of the cranberry mixture in a food processor or blender until smooth. Stir puree back into the remaining sauce before serving.
  • Serve immediately or chill before serving. Enjoy!
