Can I turn cranberry chutney recipe into pear chutney recipe by just subbing pear for cranberry?

I want to use this recipe but just substitute chopped pear for cranberry. Would it work?

ETA: Okay I found a recipe for roasted pear chutney so I may try that rather than trying this substitution.

  1. My computer is too slow for looking at your recipe but for sure, you will have to cut the sugar by at least half. Also, consider a pear-cranberry combination, which is a popular one.

    1. My guess would be cut the sugar at least in half, and that you might need to reduce the amount of liquid - I think the pear will release a lot more liquid than the cranberries will.

      1. Thank you both. I went ahead and tried this recipe before seeing your replies, it came out really good. I left out the raisins/currants and red pepper flakes.
        I will try the other with your suggested modifications next time, thank you!
