This showy side salad delites the young and the old alike. I added a bit of powdered cinnomen to the cranberry juice. A vegtable peeler made the peeling process go quickly and a thin slice off the bottom made it so they all could stand proudly and uniquely. Afterwards I added a apple juice to the warm cranberry juice and served the flavorful leftovers chilled...
Easy to make and most delicious. I was concerned that the hard pears may not cook up well but I was pleasantly surprised. I served these pears on a pedastal platter and the presentation was quite delightful. Thanks for the cranberry pear combo.
I serve these as a light refreshing dessert after a heavier meal. Always a hit and so easy. I have cooked them in a small crockpot for a few hours also. Just make sure it's only a few hours and not overcook.
I served this for dessert and it was a hit. I left the peel on the pears and let the juice cook down into a syrup. (I used unsweetened cranberry juice and maple syrup instead of cranberry cocktail - then let it cook down until it was thick.) I then cut the cooked pears in half scooped out the seed part and filled this with the 'cranberry syrup' and dribbled more across the top. Very pretty and delicious.
Made my apartment smell wonderful! Unfortunately the cranberry didn't quite take to the pears and so the pear tasted well like a pear. The color was beautiful and would definitely make a lovely side to an ice cream dessert!
This is a delicious recipe that looks very fancy but is SUPER easy definately one to make if you're wanting to impress. Its light with just the right amount of sweetness. My only recommendation is to add a bit more cranberry juice for the pear to soak in. The leftover sauce is also fantastic if you refrigerate overnight and then pour over vanilla icecream.
