This recipe comes from the 2004 cookbook, The Joy of Cranberries: The Tangy Red Treat, that I received from my partner in my 1st cookbook swap here on Zaar! Great served with either a cranberry butter or an orange butter!
There are a number of similar recipes here, but this one, I feel, really features the potato ingredient! The original of the recipe was found in the Nov 2003 cookbooklet Crisco Best Recipes -- Year-Round Holiday Magic.
Applesauce, raw & fresh! This simple recipe comes from the Honey Acres Beekeeper's Best Honey Cookbook. Although any type of apple could be used here, I prefer either the gala or fuji. And, instead of apple juice, one could substitute orange juice or pineapple juice.
This recipe of soaked rather than stewed dried fruit was found in the 2002 cookbook, Mediterranean Street Food. Almost all of the long preparation time is the PASSIVE time needed for the fruits & nuts to soak.
Here on Zaar there are a couple of recipes somewhat like this one, but there are differences, & the Great Pumpkin is tellin' Charlie Brown that this one is pretty darn good! Preparation time does not include time needed for unfrosted bars to cool completely.
