This week’s tips on enjoying your holiday meals have focused on the turkey — now, it’s cranberry sauce. Walt Disney World executive chef Lenny DeGeorge is sharing how to jazz it up with a few dried fruits.

The recipe starts with about 3 ounces of Bourbon. You’ll then add 1/2 cup of golden raisins, 1/2 cup of dried cranberries and 1/2 cup diced dried apricots. Next, add a 16 ounce can of cranberry sauce and bring it to a boil. Chill and then refrigerate the dish before serving.

This is a great recipe to make a day ahead because it has to be totally chilled when served. Happy holidays and enjoy.


  • I like the Bourbon, I use cinnamon and chopped almond, grated orange peel. Your recipe Is delicious, thank you!!

  • That’s quite nutritious one. I would prefer this over tirkey.
