My favorite!  Cranberry Sauce with Apricots & Sherry

I adore this sauce!  For me, Thanksgiving is all about the sides; turkey is pretty boring without them.  And this sauce will be on my table every year.  It's so easy to make; the hardest part is remember so slice and soak the apricots in sherry the day before.  Try this once, and I believe it will become a regular on your holiday table, too. Serves 8

1/2 Cup Dried Apricots, thinly sliced
1/4 Cup Sherry
3/4 Cup Water
2/3 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Honey
12 Ounces Fresh Cranberries

Combine apricots and sherry in a small bowl; cover and let stand 8 hours.

Combine water and sugar in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil.  Add apricot mixture, honey and cranberries.  Cook over medium heat 8 minutes or until slightly thick.  Spoon mixture into a bowl; cover and chill.  Bring to room temperature to serve.
