Tips

Expert Tips

Check that the package of dried fruit contains large pieces of fruit, such as slices of peaches, apples, pears and apricots. Diced dried fruit is also available, but the pieces are too small, so they overcook and become part of the sauce during the long, slow cooking.

Apple juice enhances the flavors of the dried fruit and pork. You can also use apricot nectar or orange juice.
