Chinese five-spice powder, cardamom, and pears make this more intriguing than the usual cranberry sauce.


1 cfrozen cranberry juice concentrate (thawed)
1⁄2 csugar
3 cpears (Bartlett, firm but ripe, peeled, chopped)
12 ozcranberries
1 1⁄2 tcardamom
1⁄2 tChinese five-spice powder


In a heavy saucepan, combine cranberry juice concentrate with sugar. Stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil. Mix in the pears, cranberries, cardamom, and Chinese five-spice powder and simmer until pears are tender and the cranberries burst, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely, then refrigerate until chilled.

This will keep covered in the refrigerator for up to three days.
