I copied this recipe from a magazine. I can't recall which one and I can't find this recipe on line. But it is truly a wonderful combination resulting in a new taste--not cranberry or pear. Have I mentioned how much I like this?

3 lb. Bosc pears, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch chunks
1 c. fresh (or frozen) cranberries, chopped in food processor
