Pear Cranberry Sauce

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
4-5 pears -peeled, cored and diced
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.
