About this recipe: This sauce will outshine any shop-bought variety. Cranberries are simmered with apples and pears in a well spiced orange juice. It's the perfect sauce to serve at Christmas dinner with roast turkey (or chicken).

Fabulous! I didn't have whole spices, so I used ground. I only had time to chill it for a couple of hours, but it still tasted great! - 03 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made two different cranberry sauces for Thanksgiving dinner this year - my usual Oranged Cranberry Sauce from this site, and this one. I cut it back to 8 servings, but otherwise followed the recipe. It was a beautiful, flavorful sauce, just a tad sweeter than I like. That could simply be the result of the fruit I used (pears can really vary in sweetness), and is easily fixed by adding a portion of the sugar, then adding more as needed after the fruit has had time to release its juices. I'll definitely make this again! - 24 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
