admin's picture
  Dried fruit 1 Pound
  Water 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Sugar 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)

Wash any desired fruit quickly but thoroughly in cold water, lifting out into saucepan.
Add water to just cover and let soak 1 to 3 hours.
In same water, simmer gently over low heat until tender (15 to 20 minutes).
During last 5 minutes of cooking, add sugar, stirring until dissolved.
Cool and drain, saving juice.
Pit if necessary, rub fruit through a sieve, or put through a food mill or chop fine in a bowl using kitchen shears.
If the puree is thicker than desired, add juice to bring to desired consistency.
A very stiff puree is preferred for fruit whips, medium stiff for cake filling.
More sugar may be stirred in if desired, to suit the taste.
Store in a tightly covered, sterilized jar in the refrigerator.
Makes about 2 1/2 cups.
(Leftover juice may be used for beverage or poured over fruit cup, etc.)
