Ginger-Pear Cranberry Sauce

Thanksgiving has almost arrived, and we have some of our best recipes prepared for you. First, try this ginger-pear cranberry sauce, which would be great on Thanksgiving day or with pork or chicken. If you prefer a more traditional cranberry sauce, check out our holiday feast for a simple sauce, cider brined turkey, carmelized onions, green beans and French apple pie.

Wow. That looks delicious. I am not involved in feast prep this Thanksgiving, but I look forward to trying this after the holiday.

Jessie: This cranberry sauce is good. I would personally make some with and some without the addition of pears and ginger. It is delicious on many other dishes besides turkey too.
