Mixed Fruit Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is something people really like or avoid. In our family it belongs in the 'like' category. Over the years we've experimented with several recipes, and I will post them over time. The most simple recipe for cranberry sauce is to combine 12 ounces of fresh cranberries with one cup of sugar and a cup of water, and bring to a simmer. The cranberries will burst after about 10 minutes of simmering and your sauce will be done. But, here's a recipe that is a little more interesting.

Mixed Fruit Cranberry Sauce

1 - 12 oz. bag cranberries
2 medium pears, chopped
1 cup orange juice (may substitute apple juice)
1/2 cup dried cherries, unsweetened
1/2 cup raisins, golden
1 cup maple syrup
3 Tbsp. crystallized ginger
1/8 tsp. cardamom, ground

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Cover and bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Simmer for 10 minutes over medium heat. Then, uncover and cook until sauce reduces and thickens. Remove from heat and cool. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Makes: 3 cups
