Broccoli with Dried Raisins, Cranberries and Sherry

Broccoli with Dried Raisins, Cranberries and Sherry: Carole's Chatter

As always I was looking for a new way to jazz up broccoli.  The better half actually cooked this (note the natural food styling!) but the idea to combine the dried fruit and the sherry was mine.  It actually tasted nice and even better the comment was made – 'it doesn't taste like broccoli' – result!

So how was this Broccoli with Dried Raisins, Cranberries and Sherry made? 

The broccoli was cut up into florets and lightly boiled for 5 minutes.

After it was drained, a snack sized packet of mixed cranberries and raisins was added and stirred through along with a splosh of dry white sherry – splosh is a technical term of course!

And that was it!  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
