This is fantastic with turkey or pork. It's also a wonderful hostess gift in a nice glass bowl/jar.
It is quite intensely flavored. A small amount goes a long way & it's not for everyone. A deep crimson color, fantastic smell in your house and cranberries makes it a natural for this time of year.
1 bag fresh cranberries, rinsed & picked over
1 7 oz bag dried apricots, roughly chopped
1 1/2 C brown sugar, packed
2/3 C dried currants
1/4 minced fresh ginger (peel it and then put into food processor until finely minced)
1/4 C apple or cranberry juice (or water or wine or brandy... I'm easy)
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cayenne
Combine it all in a large, heavy bottomed sauce pan and heat over medium until all of the sugar is melted and glossy (no visible grains when you stir). Turn up the heat and bring to a rolling boil. Allow it to boil hard for 3 full minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool in a glass bowl.
