diced dried apricots
1 (12 ounce) package
A nice twist on my usual cranberry sauce. Next time I'll use half the cider vinegar, though. (I just made another batch without it and combined them,it's perfect now.) I used finely-chopped crystallized ginger and added 1/2 tsp of Cardamom and the zest of a whole large orange for a truly great fragrance. This one's a keeper. I did use whole fresh cranberries, wasn't sure from the recipe of it meant dried cranberries, but the finished batch looks beautiful in my grandmother's crystal condiment dish.!
I don't know what I did wrong, but this recipe came out VERY TART. I had to add a splash of orange juice after it was done to cut it. Now its very tasty.
WOW!! My husband, who hates cranberry sauce, found a million ways to use this after our Thanksgiving dinner. We've had it on top of baked chicken, in wraps with turkey, chopped apples and lettuce, on roast beef sandwiches, and in various other dishes. Fantastic recipe!
I used this recipe for a holiday appetizer
and it was a big hit! I spooned it onto a brie wheel, baked it for 12-15 minutes, and served it with french bread. It was delicious!
WOW! This came out great. Followed the recipe to the letter. However, Do not make the mistake I did and turn the heat up to fast at the begining. Start off at a simmer and end with a simmer. Otherwise you will burn the Mix. This dish moves fast so stay close to the oventop. Second try was a Major success. It came out wonderful and My kids ate it like candy. Grandma keeps pounding me for the recipe, of course I gave her the web site.
I read the review about too much vinegar before cooking. Since I don't like the smell & taste of it and I decided to decrease the amount to 1/4 cup vinegar and substitute 1/4 of ginger beer soda for the remaining vinegar. I also omitted the dry ginger. I really liked the result.
This is a great recipe. I added the rind of an orange and 1/4 C. vinegar instead of the 1/2 C. as suggested in one of the reviews. I think this would make a great gift for hoilday giving....Thank you for the recipe. Suzanne
Made it as shown, but threw in a bit (1/4 c ttl) of diced dried candied pineapple and dried candied papaya for a bit of colour,texture. Terrific recipe! Nice change from the usual.
