Dried Fruit Salad
|Dried apricots||4 Ounce|
|Dried figs||8 Ounce|
|Dried peaches/Pears||8 Ounce|
Wash the fruit well and soak for 24 hours in warm ater.
It will need 2-4 times its bulk of water.
Cook very gently in the soaking water until tender, 1/2-1 hour.
Lemon or orange peel or some cinnamon or cider may be used for extra flavour, and a little sugar should be added towards the end of cooking.
If added too soon it prevents the fruit from softening properly.
