This cranberry sauce has a balance of sweet and tart flavors that perfectly complement a Thanksgiving turkey. It's also very good with roast chicken or pork. If you can get your hands on Royal Blenheim dried apricots, they will repay you in flavor for their sometimes steep purchase price.
3 oz. (½ cup) thinly sliced dried apricots
¼ cup dry sherry or orange juice
¾ cup water
½ cup sugar
¼ cup honey12 oz. (3 cups) fresh or frozen cranberries
