Roasted Pears with Strawberry Relish
- 1 (16 ounce) can whole-berry cranberry sauce
- ⅔ cup (about 10 ounces) frozen whole strawberries, cut in half
- ½ cup chopped toasted pecans
- 1 tablespoon chopped crystallized ginger
- 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
- 4 firm, ripe USA Pears
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
For relish: In microwave, heat cranberry sauce in large Pyrex bowl for 2 minutes on high power, or heat in saucepan over low heat until warm. Stir in strawberries, pecans, ginger, and orange zest. Keep warm.
Peel pears; cut in half. With 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 spatula and broil cut sides until they start to brown, about 4 minutes on each side. Fill cavity of each pear half with ¼ cup strawberry relish.
