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!
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.
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.
