  3. Add cauliflower, salt and pepper, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, uncovered, stirring frequently.
  4. Add brown sugar, cranberries (if using), raisins, lemon zest and juice, cider vinegar and balsamic vinegar (if using). Turn up the heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes more.
