1 cup sugar
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 (1/4-inch-thick) fresh ginger slices
1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots


1. Bring first 5 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Stir in cranberries and apricots, and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 to 15 minutes or until berries begin to split and mixture begins to thicken.

2. Remove from heat; cool 30 minutes. Discard cinnamon and ginger. Pour into a 3-cup mold; cover and chill 8 hours or until set.
