To make the spicy cranberry salsa, combine cranberries, sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium and cook for about 10 minutes and stirring often. Then, remove from heat and let the mixture cool slightly. Lastly, stir in pear, onion, celery, lemon peel and juice, cumin and jalapeno.
For quesadillas, preheat a griddle over medium heat and top one half of each tortilla with 1/2 cup turkey and sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese. Close the tortilla by folding it. Cook until golden brown and cheese is gooey and melted. Remove from heat and serve with the cranberry salsa.
