      You have never tasted anything so good in your life. No one in my family really just loves the tartness of cranberries, and every year we kind of politely take some just to "add color" to our plate. This was not the case with this recipe. People were clamoring for seconds. I was afraid it would turn out a little fruit-salad-like, but it really didn't. The color was what I was accustomed to, and the flavor is out of this world without being too sweet. No one knew how I did it, but I have converted the family! We all like our cranberries now!

      I loved this cranberry sauce! I used frozen berries and made it in the crock pot. I just threw everything in there and cooked it on low for about 3 hours (the berries were frozen.) I didn't find any ripe pears in the grocery store (I went shopping the day before Thanksgiving so no time for one to ripen) so I used canned pears with no sugar added. I expected it to be too sweet what with the dried fruit, but it wasn't once it was cold. (It was a bit on the sweet side when warm.) I did add a bit of orange zest (just a bit) and it added a nice bit of tart accent. This makes a fair amount of sauce, so I had a lot left over (with just hubby and I eating it) and will freeze it for future use. It would be great with pork chops or chicken too. I'm putting this in my "keeper" file for future. It was excellent.

      This cranberry sauce got rave reviews at my Christmas dinner. I used a combination of raisins, prunes, cherries, and apricots for my dried fruit. I also added a little orange zest. Only change was to omit the pecans. Thank you!
