4 cups water
1½ cups mixed dried fruits, tightly packed
12 dried figs, halved
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup walnuts
2 Tbsp crystallized ginger

1. Place water, fruits, nuts and ginger in a NESCO® 3-in-1 Digital 6 Qt. Electric Pressure Cooker.

2. Place lid on cooker and turn counter-clockwise until it locks into place and Locking Pin 'clicks' into place.

3. Turn Pressure Regulator Knob to "Pressure" or "Seal" [see note below].

4. Then set Pressure Regulator Button on Control Panel to "LOW". Set desired cooking time by pressing "LOW" button once for each minute until desired time is reached [5 minutes].

5. Press START/STOP button to begin cooking. Indicator light will stop flashing. Cooker will begin to count down (in minutes) and Floating Valve will rise after appropriate cooking pressure has been reached.
