    Pear-Homey Cranberry Sauce

    Advertisements
    This stuff is the best!

    Pear Honey Cranberry Sauce (original recipe)

    ˝ cup sugar
    ˝ cup water
    2 medium pears, peeled and diced
    1 (12-ounce) package fresh cranberries
    1 cup honey
    1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
    2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

    Combine the sugar and water in a large saucepan; stir well. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to medium. Stir in diced pear and cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add cranberries and honey; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until cranberry skins pop. Remove from heat and stir in grated lemon rind and lemon juice. Cover and chill thoroughly. Yield: 4 cups


    My modifications:

    1. Use canned pears; get the kind in juice or in light syrup (the syrup is a pain), drain thoroughly, and add them in at the point where you like. The longer the pears sit in the cranberry stuff, the redder they’ll get (absorbing color). If you add them later, they’ll absorb less color.

    2. It’s okay to use dried lemon peel; just use half the amount. Also, RealLemon (bottled lemon juice) works just fine

    3. After the cranberry mix has cooled and started to gel, add in one can of mandarin oranges (drained)

    4. Be prepared for it to take longer than 5-7 minutes for all the cranberry skins to pop

    5. If you find the mixture creating froth in the saucepan, turn the heat down and try to skim off all the bubbles. They look icky.

    For the record, LittleBit is correct. this recipe was originally plainer. She suggested the mandarin oranges and it really makes a big difference.

    So yea, it's HER recipe. From when she was about 13. I wasn't modifying recipes when I was 13. Who raised that kid?????
