I have been making this for years. Wonderful sauce for your Thanksgiving day holiday-- but goes great with roasted meats any time of year. It is easy and a delicious alternative to the canned cranberry sauce. You can alter the ingredients to fit your taste as well.
In medium bowl, mix together apricots, cranberries, raisins (or dried cherries), and the spices.
In large saucepan, boil the water and sugar, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Add the dried fruit/cranberry/spice mixture and vinegar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring often, until cranberries pop, and mixture thickens a little bit.
Remove from heat, allow to cool for 10 minutes. Serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator in a covered container for up to 2 weeks.
