    Question:Cranberry,- Pear,- and- Ginger- Relish

    Cranberry, Pear, and Ginger Relish
    I have no access to fresh cranberries. I have all the other ingredients. Is it better to just omit the cranberries? to substitute with a different fruit? (grapes?) to adjust ratio of other ingredients?
    Thank you.

    The recipe calls for fresh and dried cranberries (Craisins). I'd maybe use all dried, but re-hydrate some of them first and reduce the sugar to compensate. You could also use some plumped golden raisins, but they'd lack the tartness of cranberries. Tart cherries would also make a good substitute.
    Where do you live that you can't get cranberries at this time of year? They are also available frozen, you could use those if you find some.

    The pear and ginger are accent flavors to the cranberries. If you can't get them, you'd be best served to find a new recipe.

    Thank you both for your comments.
    In answer to your question Zeldaz, I am in a somewhat remote part of Saudi Arabia (where my husband works). It was hard enough finding a turkey; pumpkin (fresh or tinned), pecans, cranberries (other than the odd few dried ones) are nowhere to be found. icon_smile.gif

    Are canned available? I'm thinking, probably not.
    If they are, add the pear & ginger to the canned cranberries.

    Well, that makes sense, not many cranberry bogs in Saudi Arabia! If there some indigenous tart red fruit that might stand in? Or consider making a chutney with the fruits you can get. Sometimes breaking tradition is a good thing, it could lead to a new one. Happy Thanksgiving!
