  • 4 cups mixed dried fruit of your choice – raisins, golden raisins, pears, apricots, figs, cherries, cranberries, etc. – roughly chopped
  • 2 cups cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup Terra Bella, Syrah
  • 1 cup water

Combine all ingredients in a 5- or 6-quart heavy pot. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.

Turn down to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquid is reduced and syrupy, 30-40 mins.

Carefully transfer to a food processor fitted with a metal blade, and pulse until desired consistency is reached.

Makes 1.5 quarts. Store in glass canning jars in the refrigerator for up to six weeks.
