Cranberry-Pear Relish recipe found at last

Thursday, December 02, 1999

Twas the day before Thanksgiving, and the PG Food desk was swamped with lots of last-minute recipe calls for the holiday. Several callers were looking for a Cranberry Pear Relish recipe that we could not find in our recipe database. We couldn't find it because it was actually published in Parade magazine, an insert printed elsewhere and stuffed in Sunday newspapers across the country, including the Post-Gazette. It was featured in Sheila Lukins' Simply Delicious column.

We repeat the recipe here by popular demand.

Cranberry Pear Relish

When choosing pears, either Anjou or Bosc will do. Anjou pears are juicier.

4 cups (about 1 pound) fresh cranberries, picked over
2 cups sugar
1 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
2 slightly underripe pears, cored, peeled and cut into 1/3- inch dice

Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan and stir well. Place pan over medium heat and boil until berries pop open, about 10 minutes. Skim the foam off the surface with a metal spoon and let the relish cool to room temperature. Refrigerate, covered, for up to 2 months. Makes 10 servings.
