2 ts Molasses

1 ts Freshly grated ginger
8 oz Dried apricots; slivered

Combine brown rice vinegar, molasses, and grated onion. Add turkey cubes;
toss to coat turkey with marinade. Refrigerate for several hours or
overnight. Drain turkey, reserving marinade.

Add oil to heavy nonstick skillet, set on medium heat, and brown a few
turkey cubes and the garlic at a time (if you crowd the pan, the meat will
steam, not brown).

Put browned turkey in a large casserole. Combine reserved marinade, white
grape juice, water, lemon juice, and grated ginger; pour over turkey. Stir
in apricot slivers and cover.

Bake at 325 F. for 30 minutes. Turkey should be tender. Stir in cilantro.

Serve over steamed rice.
