Pear Cranberry Sauce

by Kevin

Wow!  Here is a great fall recipe.  I now make this every year for our family’s Thanksgiving dinner. (You know, when we all celebrate the terrible things Christopher Columbus did to the native people when he showed up in the US and stole their land – Yes, that glorious day) This dish takes a classic cranberry sauce to the next level.  The addition of pears, ginger and cinnamon make this a side to remember.
