Why I Love This Recipe

Recipe courtesy of the Vegetarian Resource Group (

This topping is excellent on hot biscuits or fresh bread. Refrigerated, it will keep for about one week.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 medium pears or apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/2 cup water
3/4 to 1 cup organic or raw sugar
1 to 2 Tablespoons brandy (optional)


In a medium saucepan combine pears or apples, cranberries, orange juice, zest, and water.

Bring to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes or until fruit is tender.

Purée in a blender until smooth.

Return to pan and add sugar and brandy, if desired. Cook on medium-low, stirring frequently, until very thick.

Once the "butter" begins to thicken, stir constantly so mixture doesn't burn.

Cool before serving.
