Cranberry Sauce

  • ½ cup dried apricots, cut into quarters

  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  1. Pick through the cranberries, discarding the soft and rotten ones, wash the rest
  2. Place cranberries and water in pot, bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer for 10 minutes
  3. Add the apricots and currants, simmer for five minutes
  4. Add honey, orange and ginger zest and simmer five minutes

Serve as a snack or over turkey!
