Cranberry- Pear Sauce

Photo: Jonathan Kantor
Cranberries are weight-loss superstars. Studies have found that they contain organic acids that may help dissolve fat deposits, plus enzymes that may boost metabolism. Too bad we tend to dump sugar over them to temper their tartness. The pears in this dish add sweetness, which means you can use half the sugar found in most canned sauces.

Very easy recipe that my family loved! I usually couldn't get any of them to touch cranberries, but wanted to include them as a traditional Thanksgiving food. This was my answer!
