I think the flavors of the cranberry and lemon blend well in this sauce. The honey and pear also give it a nice flavor without being overly sweet.
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 (12 oz) bag fresh cranberries
1 cup honey
1 Tb lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
- In saucepan, stir water and sugar over medium high heat until boiling. Stir in pears and reduce heat to medium and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Add cranberries and honey. Continue to cook until cranberries pop and mixture thickens.
- Remove from heat and add lemon juice and zest. Cool to room temperature. This can be refrigerated for up to a week and freezes well.
*For a sweet cranberry sauce:
Combine in a saucepan, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, 1 12 oz bag of fresh cranberries and one small box of raspberry jello. Cook over medium heat until cranberries pop open. Cool and refrigerate.
