Pear Cranberry Sauce

This dazzling pink pear & cranberry sauce has a perfect balance of tart and sweet tastes. It stands in for the applesauce that traditionally accompanies latkes.

Serves 6

Prep Time 45 min

Total Time 45 min.


  • 3 large ripe Bartlett pears, peeled
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 4-inch cinnamon stick

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Grate pears into a large saucepan, using the large holes of a box grater; take the flesh all the way down to the core but do not get any seeds in the pan.

Step 2

Stir in water, cranberries, sugar, ginger, salt and cinnamon stick; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until the pears break down and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
