Ingredients Convert to Imperial

  • 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

Directions:

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.

Tips:

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.
