A Pineapple Cranberry Breakfast Jam

The beauty of making something from dried fruit is all those concentrated flavors melding together. And all the ingredients can be kept in the pantry, ready for inspiration and opportunity. The natural sweetness of pineapple and apricots balance tart cranberries, and all it takes is some time for soaking and processing. Use this spread as a breakfast jam, a topping for dairy-free yogurt or hot cereal, or a base for a fruit vinaigrette salad dressing.
