Cranberry Pear Fried Rice

Cranberry Pear Fried Rice

Fall fruit is here! I look forward to fresh cranberries and Asian pears every year. Of course, cranberries are delicious when made into cranberry sauce and crispy pears are so good to eat fresh. They are also tasty when they find their way onto my dinner table in other ways.

Cranberry Pear Fried Rice is sweet, savory, tart and satisfying. It works well with leftover rice or with rice that you have made specifically to use in this recipe. I love how the cranberries give the whole dish a pretty, pink tint.

    I wonder how this rice dish would turn out if I made it in my rice cooker.
