About this recipe: Refreshingly sweet, tart and tangy - this recipe is incredibly easy and it's a great change of pace from the bog standard cranberry sauce. The flavour of the cranberries mingles wonderfully with the pear, honey and lemon. It freezes well too!
I was a little unsure about adding the Honey to this recipe as I thought it would be too sweet but not so. I used Orange Juice instead of water and left out the Lemon juice and zest. I also split the sauce so that I ended up with 3 different Pear & Honey Cranberry Sauces - Basic Pear & Honey Cranberry Sauce, Pear, Honey and Port Cranberry Sauce and Pear, Honey and Creme de Cassis Cranberry Sauce. Add the Port or Creme de Cassis until it is how you like it. I made enough of this sauce to fill 2 1lb jars and 9 8oz jars which I gave away as gifts. Of the jars I kept I only have 1 of the 1lb jars left and have to make more! Its very easy to make so even complete beginners will be able to do this. Definitely a winner not only with my family but with friends too. - 30 Dec 2015
