Dark cherries may be unusual in a traditional cranberry relish, but they are an interesting and worthwhile addition. They give the relish a beautiful ruby hue and complex taste; pears provide a delicate balance to the assertive red fruits.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine cranberries, cherries, pears, vinegar, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon in a large heavy saucepan and bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring often to prevent sticking. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is tender and the relish has thickened, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool.



Make Ahead Tip: The relish will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
