We don't care for regular cranberry sauce, so I usually perk it up with other fruit. This pear version is the one my family requests most often. It's sweet, tangy and a beautiful ruby-red color. Since it keeps well in the refrigerator, I often make it in advance.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 20, 2011

This was a hit, even with some who only eat the jellied sauce out of a can. This is a new traditional dish for me!

MY REVIEW

Even family members who don't like cranberry sauce like this recipe! It's been a Thanksgiving hit since I started making it four years ago.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 17, 2010

I made this last Thanksgiving and it was a hit! I substituted the fresh pears for canned, and added them toward the end of the cooking process. I also used some of the pear juice for water, so I was able to use less sugar.
