Makes 3 cups

8 ounces fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup dried tart cherries or craisins
1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
1 cinnamon stick (about 3 in. long)
1 wide piece lemon peel (about 3 in. long)
1 wide piece orange peel (about 3 in. long)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

Put all ingredients and 1 1/2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Simmer over low heat, stirring often, until cranberries have popped, flavors are developed, and dried fruit has softened, about 30 minutes. Let cool, then spoon into a serving bowl and chill until ready to take to the party (remove citrus peels and cinnamon stick before serving). Can be made up to 2 -3 days ahead of serving.
