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 tired this recipe exactly how it's written. I even watched the video. Something just didn't taste right about.....maybe the garam masala.
