  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins

  • 1/2 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger

  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder

  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, raisins, ginger and curry powder and simmer over low heat until the vinegar has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Stir in the apricot preserves and scallion and season with salt. Let cool. Use on grilled ribs, chicken or lamb.
