Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes



  1. Bring the lemon juice, orange juice and honey to a boil and add apricots and raisins in a small saucepan.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer just until they become tender and a little syrupy, about 10 minutes. Do not overcook or they will dissolve. You want to still have definition in your fruit.
  3. Remove apricots and raisins with a slotted spoon and reduce sauce for about 2 minutes to thicken.
  4. Remove from heat and add apricots, raisins, and walnuts back to sauce.
  5. Serve warm or chilled.
Yields about 2 cups
