Divide raisins and cranberries into two different bowls. Boil a small amount of water and pour over raisins and cranberries and allow to sit for roughly 10 minutes before draining (This re-hydrates and softens the fruit)
Blanch broccoli - Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil and add broccoli. Allow to cook for 2 minutes (no longer than that) and remove from heat. Drain water from broccoli and immediately rinse with cool water to stop the cooking process.
Cook bacon pieces according to package instructions, making sure that the bacon doesn't overcook and become too crispy - you want it to still be a little soft so that you can easily chop it
