Orange Couscous

If you haven't tried couscous start here ! 
The dish was well received at our last workplace potluck. ( where they
always curiously eye my dish trying to guess the ingredients !! ) 

1 3/4 orange juice
1 cup uncooked couscous
1/3 cup chopped dried apricots or dried pineapple
1/4 cup raisins or cranraisins
1 teas ground cinnamon
1/8 teas ground ginger
1 T honey
1/2 cup water

Bring 1 1/2 cups orange juice to a boil in a small saucepan.Stir in couscous
and remove from heat, cover, and allow to stand for 5 minutes.  Heat
remaining 1/4 cup orange juice in another saucepan. Add apricots
( or pineapple ), raisins, honey and cinnamon and ginger and saute for 2 or
3 minutes. 
combine couscous and fruit mixture and spoon into serving bowls if serving
at once. Makes 3 servings.
You can also pack the mixture into a  3 serving size container and
refridgerate. Upon chilling it will turn into the consistency of a packed
bread pudding. YUM !
