Southern Living


2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 1/2 cups fresh orange juice
1 (12-ounce) package fresh cranberries
6 pears, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons grated orange rind
1 1/2 cups uncooked regular oats
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine


Combine first 7 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until cranberries pop and mixture thickens. Spoon evenly into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

Combine oats, flour, and brown sugar in a small bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender until crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit mixture.

Bake at 375° for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
