3 cups mixed dried fruit
Water or cranberry juice
Combine 3 cups of mixed dried fruits (e.g. prunes, apricots, raisins or dried cranberries) in a microwave-safe glass bowl.
Add water or cranberry juice to cover the top of the fruit by at least 1 inch.
Microwave covered on high power for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring once or twice.
When cool, refrigerate. The liquid will become sweeter the longer it stands.
