Step 1

In a non-reactive large saucepan, combine maple syrup, vinegar, ginger, and sea salt. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat. Add the pears, cover and cook until crisp tender, about 5 minutes.

Add the citrus zests, juices, and cranberries to the pot. Simmer over medium heat, stirring often, until cranberries begin to pop – about 10-15 minutes. Return pear mixture to cranberries and cook for 5 minutes more. At this point you can use an immersion blender to break up the cranberries some or leave them “whole” style.

For canning: Pour, while hot, into prepared hot jars, leaving ¼-inch head space. Adjust caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath. Let cool overnight before checking seals.
For refrigeration: Transfer to Mason jars and let them come to room temperature before covering and refrigerating.
