This sounds very interesting--especially because I love cranberries. I wonder if it could be made with fresh cranberries... I confess I have no idea what "pink Himalayan salt" is. Does it have a different taste?

I like the texture, color and taste of the pink Himalayan. But feel free to substitute any good grainy kind of salt. Kosher would work fine. I think fresh cranberries would add lots of tartness, so maybe just lightly sweeten them somehow with a drizzle of maply syrup or some such. I have been away up in Maine where I have just gotten married. Sorry for a delay in response!!

delicious - as we were strangely out of sumac, we added lavender and rosemary to the dish, which added a wonderful savory depth to the dish. will be making this one again!

Thanks, torryb! So glad you enjoyed this. When I wrote this recipe up, I had just met Judith Jones, who really inspired me to think about writing recipes. Love your additions.

I can't decide what I like best, your brilliant writing, your creativity, your good humor, or Step 2. Great recipe, Sagegreen!

This sounds wonderful, love the addition of the pair of pared pears :-) I really need to hunt down some sumac ...
Thanks. This is kinda what determined the two pears vs. one or three! For the caramelized topping, it is so worth tracking down the sumac!!!
