1/4 Cup brown sugar, firmly packed 1/4 Cup molasses 1/4 Cup honey, use a rich flavored one if you can find it, mint, buckwheat, whatever, plus extra as necessary 2-4 Cups fresh cranberries, washed and picked over 1-2 Granny Smith apples, cored, peeled if desired, and coarsely chopped 1 Large orange, unpeeled, coarsely chopped, and seeded 1 Cup dried apricots, coarsely chopped Zest of 1 lemon, grated or chopped Juice of 1 lemon, including pulp, seeds removed
Combine all ingredients in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes; stir thoroughly. Repeat two more times for a total of 9 minutes. Taste, and adjust sweetness with more honey. In the unlikely event that the relish is too sweet, add a little more lemon juice. The relish will probably be a little bit runny, but it will jell as it cools. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled as an accompaniment to turkey or anything else. It's even great with cream cheese on toasted bagels or English muffins.
