1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup water
4 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup dried cranberries
2 ripe pears, peeled and diced
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp salt


Place washed cranberries in a large saucepan along with ALL of the other ingredients.  Stir to combine.

Cook over low to medium heat for about 30 minutes.

You will need to babysit this one and stir frequently or it will scorch. Ideally you want all the cranberries to “pop” and the sauce to be nice and thick when you’re done with it.

Makes about 4 cups.
