A very nice lowfat relish to serve along side the turkey for the holidays. Simple and quick with the tart from the cranberries and sweetness from the cherries and pears. This recipe originally came from a very popular food and health magazine and can kept in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large heavy saucepan combine all the ingredients and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Stir often to prevent sticking.
  2. When mixture is simmering, reduce heat to low. Cook mixture until fruit is tender and the relish has thickened, approximately 40-50 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool, serve.

Oh my gosh this is so good, since this was the first time making it I reduced the amounts by half, I also used some white sugar as well as the dark, I'll be making this again very soon, thanks for sharing Lori, this was made for KK's Chef Pick tag game

I have made this and will be serving it for Christmas Dinner - so I will be back with my taste review and photos then! However - it was so easy to make and a few spoons tastes tell me that it will be FABULOUS! It is sitting in my fridge right now! Thanks for such an inspirational recipe - great! FT:-)

A great relish, though I prefer thinking of it as a 'sauce!' The combination of cranberries with cherries & pears is wonderful, & although I used it this time primarily with chicken breasts [also over ice cream, & just right out of the dish, alone!], I look forward to making it to include with pork roasts & pound cake as well as for next Thanksgiving! Many thanks for the recipe!
