"This was awesome - I didn't have any apricots (and I usually do) so I used dried cherries with the cranberries and raisins. Didn't have any cranberry concentrate so I used some of my frozen blackberries in the cranberry/apple juice. This recipe is sooooo good:-) Will try it next time with apricots."
