Serves: 6 person(s)

Preparation Time: 5 mins
Cooking Time: 15 mins


    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.
