580ml water
100g caster sugar
40g dried cranberries
60g dried apricots, chopped
40g dried cherries, chopped
500g couscous
60g coarsely chopped toasted slivered almonds
1) In a medium saucepan, combine the water, sugar, cranberries, apricots, and cherries. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until the granulated sugar has dissolved, about two minutes.

3) Stir in the couscous and remove the pan from the heat. Cover the pan with a tight fitting lid until the couscous has absorbed all of the cooking liquid, about 5 to 7 minutes.

4) Using a fork, fluff the couscous to break up any lumps. Add the almonds and hazelnuts and toss. Spread the mixture evenly on a baking tin until completely cooled, about 10 minutes.

5) Transfer the couscous to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.

6) Serving suggestion, drizzle the couscous with 60ml of extra-virgin olive oil for a moister texture.
