Dietitian's Tip: 

Serve atop low-fat cream cheese with whole grain crackers for a refreshing appetizer, or let it compliment lean roasted pork loin.

Ingredients: 

1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup Strawberry preserves
1/2 cup Strawberry wine vinegar
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
2 teaspoons minced peeled gingerroot
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1 medium navel orange, segmented
4 cups whole Strawberries, hulled and diced
1/2 cup sliced almonds
Strawberry fans (optional)

 

Preparation: 

Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large non-aluminum saucepan; bring to boil.

Cook, uncovered, over medium heat 15 minutes or until slightly thickened and syrupy, stirring frequently. Add strawberries; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat; stir in almonds. Spoon into a bowl; cover and chill. Garnish with strawberry fans, if desired. Yield: 3 1/4 cups (serving size 1 tablespoon)
