Ingredients Convert to Metric

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 inch-piece fresh ginger, peeled and very thinly slivered
  • 1 cup dried fruit mix
  • 2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 orange, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and cut into small, thin wedges


In large saucepan, combine sugar, water and ginger. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add dried fruit mix. Bring back to a boil and immediately reduce heat to low simmer. Cook, uncovered, until fruit is not quite tender, about 5 minutes.

Add cranberries and simmer, stirring occasionally, until cranberries pop. Stir in orange and apple. Remove from heat and allow to cool down. Serve warm or at room temperature.


It can be served "as is" for family meals; as a topping on angel food, sponge, or pound cake for company; or for those favorite winter comfort foods, with rice and tapioca pudding.
