Quick! Cranberry Sauce

1 1/4 c apple cider
1 cinnamon stick
4 cloves
1 c sugar
1 package (12 oz) cranberries
2 small pears (or apples) diced

Bring the apple cider, cinnamon, and cloves to a boil. Boil for about 5 minutes, until fragrant. Remove the cloves and cinnamon. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved.
Add the cranberries and pears, turn the heat down and simmer about 10-15 minutes until the berries have burst and the sauce begins to come together. Turn off the heat and let it sit for a few minutes before serving. Can be made in advance, just refrigerate and rewarm the next day.

This sauce can also be processed in a water bath canner. The recipe makes about 4 half pints. Process for 15 minutes.
