Yule Cranberry Ginger Bars
Cranberry Ginger Bars
3 cups of fresh or frozen cranberries
3/4 cups each of raisins, dried apricots and crystallised ginger
1 lb/450g/3 cups of mixed dried fruit of your choice - including lots of dried apricots works very well
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup apple juice
In a large saucepan combine all ingredients. Bring to a gentle boil over a medium heat. Stir for about 5 minutes or until the cranberries have popped. Let cool.
Base and Topping:
2 cups flour
3/4 cups brown sugar
1 and a half teaspoons of ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of margarine or vegetable shortening
1 cup of rolled oats
3/4 cup of raw sunflower seeds
Mix all ingredients together. Set aside 1 and a half cups of crumb mixture for topping. Press the remainder into a 9" by 13" baking pan. Bake at 180C/350F for 15 minutes. Spread with cranberry mixture and sprinkle with remaining crumbs. Bake for another 30 minutes. Yummy!
Yeah, This is my life now!
