Makes 9 servings
Sprinkle half of the soup mix in bottom of 9x13-inch baking pan. Lay brisket in pan and sprinkle remaining soup mix evenly over meat. Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil. Bake at 350°F 2-1/2 hours. In medium bowl, combine honey with remaining ingredients. Uncover pan and spoon off fat. Spread fruit mixture over meat. Cover pan with foil and return to oven. Cook until meat is very tender when pierced with fork (about 1 to 1-1/2 hours). Slice brisket across grain and serve with fruit and juices. Steamed brown rice or buttered noodles makes a good accompaniment.
