Ingredients

Directions

  1. Divide the pork, paprika, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, and cayenne between 2 large pots; season each with 1 ½ teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Toss to coat. Divide the onions between the pots.
  2. Divide the chicken broth, preserves, and vinegar between the pots and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until tender, about 2 ½ hours.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and ½ cup water. Dividing evenly between the pots, stir in the cornstarch mixture along with the chickpeas and dried apricots. Simmer, uncovered, until the cooking liquid is slightly thickened, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. To eat tonight: Dig in!
  5. To freeze and reheat later: Freeze the stew in four 2-quart or eight 1-quart freezer-safe containers for up to 3 months. To reheat, thaw the stew and cook, covered, in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through, 15 to 20 minutes.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
