Recipe Notes

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10-15 minutes, plus 15-20 minutes to cool
Serves: 6


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
¾ c. water
Sea salt, to taste


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.

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.

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.

4. 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.

5. Serve immediately or chill before serving. Enjoy!
