Ingredients for Sauce:
- 12 oz. fresh cranberries
- 2 medium ripe pears, peeled and diced
- 2 t. fresh ginger, peeled and grated
- 3 T. fresh rosemary leaves, finely diced
- 3 T. real maple syrup
- 3⁄4 c. water
- Sea salt, to taste
Cranberry Pear Sauce Directions:
Step 1: Add cranberries, pear, ginger, rosemary leaves, maple syrup, and water to a medium saucepan.
Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture starts to boil and the cranberries burst open, approximately 5 minutes.
Step 2: Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for another 5-10 minutes.
While cooking, mash the cranberries and pears with a wooden spoon.
Season with a pinch of sea salt and stir to combine.
Step 3: Remove from heat and allow sauce to cool for 15-20 minutes before checking the consistency.
Add a little water if the sauce is too thick.
Taste and add more maple syrup for a sweeter sauce, if desired.
Optional: For a smoother sauce, blend one-half of the cranberry mixture in a food processor or blender until smooth.
Stir puree back into the remaining sauce before serving.
Step 4: Serve immediately or chill before serving. Enjoy!
