Kick up your holidays with this no sugar added Gingered Cranberry Pear Sauce. Tart cranberries, sweet firm pears and a dash of ginger.
Add cranberries, pear, ginger, 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.
Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for another 5-10 minutes. While cooking, mash the cranberries and pears with a wooden spoon.
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. Chill before serving.
