Total Time25 mins
Servings: 6


  • 12 oz Fresh cranberries
  • 2 medium Ripe pears, peeled and diced
  • 2 tsp Fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 2 tsp Fresh rosemary leaves, finely diced
  • 3 tsp Real maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • Sea salt, to taste


  • Add cranberries, pear, ginger, rosemary leaves, maple syrup, and water to a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until the mixture starts to boil and the cranberries burst open approximately 5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for another 5-10 minutes. While cooking, mash the cranberries and pears with a wooden spoon. Season with a pinch of sea salt and stir to combine.
  • Remove from heat and allow sauce to cool for 15-20 minutes before checking the consistency. Add a little water if the sauce is too thick. Taste and add more maple syrup for a sweeter sauce, if desired.
  • Optional: For a smoother sauce, blend one-half of the cranberry mixture in a food processor or blender until smooth. Stir puree back into the remaining sauce before serving.
  • Serve immediately or chill before serving. Enjoy!
