"This is a truly delicious recipe made with little effort . You have the option of dried cherries or cranberries. I used cranberries and they complimented the recipe perfectly. It looks very attractive and is a dish that you would be proud to serve to company or your family. The recipe was originally from Taste of Home magazine by Marcia Whitney with minor changes by me."
