3 large ripe Bartlett pears, peeled
1 cup water
3/4 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen, thawed
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 4-inch cinnamon stick
Grate pears into a large saucepan, using the large holes of a box grater; take the flesh all the way down to the core but do not get any seeds in the pan.
Stir in water, cranberries, sugar, ginger, salt and cinnamon stick; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until the pears break down and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
