A Tasty Bite

For those looking for a cranberry relish that's just a little bit different, for your own holiday table or to bring to someone else's -- here's my current favorite (from Cooking Light).

Triple Cranberry Sauce with Dried Apricots and Apples
  • 2 cups chopped dried apples
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries (craisins)
  • 2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 8 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 1 Tablespoon grated lemon rind.

Combine first 7 ingredients in a large saucepan, bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 25 minutes. Add rind, and simmer 2 minutes. Cover and chill. Yield: 16 servings

Since I generally cook for a small group, I halve the ingredients. Can be held in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. In fact, I think it needs at least one day for the flavors to mingle and mellow.
