Add the honey and rum or brandy if desired.
Simmer mixture, stirring, until thickened and fruit is tender, about 15 minutes.
Adjust liquid if too thick by adding more juice.
Serve hot or cold.
(Do not reheat if arrowroot is used as arrowroot-thickened food will not stay thick if reheated.) *Variations: If you can use corn, you can substitute cornstarch for the arrowroot.
Other fruits such as prunes, dried figs, mandarin orange sections, dried apples, canned plums, diced papayas, mango or grapes can be added or substituted as desired.
Use a combination of 3 cups water and 3 cups of any combination of the following you wish: orange juice, pineapple juice, grape juice, apple juice, or cranberry juice.
