    I added apples because I didn't have enough pears, delicious!

    My family loved this recipe and I made it twice already. We much prefer it as a light dessert and cold rather than a side dish and warm. The flavors of the spices are nicely balanced and it comes together so easily.

    I had a Christmas brunch and this was a HUGE hit. I used canned mandarin oranges in place of the naval oranges. I will definitely be making this again and again.
