    This was so delicious - everybody loved it. It makes a big pot, so be prepared to freeze the leftovers. I added 1 t. of powdered ginger, could probably have added even more. I also felt like I could have even used a whole onion.  -  31 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this for Thanksgiving dinner and it was wonderful!! I made a few very minor adjustments... I increased the sugar to 1 cup (it seemed too tart with 3/4 cup, but I'm sure tartness varies depending on the ripeness of the cranberries). I also added 1/2 tsp of orange zest. I used a 2qt saucepan and ended up not having enough room for all of the apple (granny smiths) and pear pieces. It was great with the amount used. Next time I will only use one apple and one pear. This will be a standard Turkey Day Dish in our house from now on! Excellent recipe - thanks for sharing it!!  -  27 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I loved this recipe and it was so easy to make. My husband even liked it and added it to his pork chops. I didn't have any pears so I just used more apples.  -  05 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
