1 (12 ounce) package
Bosc pear, peeled and diced
fresh orange juice
candied ginger, minced
whole star anise pod
Scale back on the sugar, and it's spectacular! Next time I'll start with 1/2 cup and add more to taste. You get sweetness from the orange juice as well as the pear, so a full cup isn't really necessary. I had to add an additional cup of cranberries to balance it out.
This cranberry dish is so so delicious. I made it for Thanksgiving and then for Christmas. And then as a spread for bread or ANYTHING! Next I am going to make it and can it!
I roughly followed this recipe, and it was amazing. I've never been particularly fond of the tartness of cranberries so I used an equal amount of pears instead of just one, and anise and the spice blend were a little out of hand for me, so I just substituted other spice blends (nutmeg, allspice) to taste. It turned out a dark dark red but so sweet and delicious. We ate in on toast for months, and it kept fine.
I tired this recipe exactly how it's written. I even watched the video. Something just didn't taste right about.....maybe the garam masala.
