  • 1 16 oz. can whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 2/3 cup strawberries, halved
  • 1/2 cup toasted pecans
  • 1 tbsp crystallized ginger, chopped
  • 1 tsp grated orange zest
  • 4 ripe pears
  • 1 tbsp melted butter


To make strawberry relish using a microwave, heat cranberry sauce in large Pyrex bowl for 2 minutes on high power. Or heat in a saucepan over low heat until warm. Stir in strawberries, pecans, ginger and orange zest. Keep warm.

Peel pears and cut in half. With a spoon, scoop out seeds and enough flesh to make a large cavity. Place pears on baking sheet, cut side up, and brush with butter. Turn pears over and brush with butter again.

Place under broiler until pears start to brown; turn pears over with a spatula and broil cut side down until they start to brown, approximately 4 minutes on each side. Fill cavity of each pear with 1/4 cup of strawberry relish and serve.
