"A really, truly gorgeous dried fruit salad that i serve in the evenings to share with my mum and sisters over a good movie. I use organic pine nuts, and rain forest honey... of course, you don't have to, but sometimes these little touches help, I think. Add the pine nuts however much or little you like 'em, about 2 ounces is good for me. I serve this in sundae glasses, to show off the fruit, with plain yogurt and a sprinkling of Demerara sugar."

  1. Place the figs, apricots, prunes, cranberries, raisins, and golden raisins into a bowl. Pour in just enough water to cover. Cover the bowl and soak overnight, at least 8 hours.
  2. Pour the fruit with the soaking water into a saucepan. Stir in the pine nuts and honey. Bring to a simmer; cook, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is tender but still holds its shape, about 30 minutes. Remove from the heat; return the fruit and liquid to the bowl, being careful not to break up the fruit. Cool to room temperature.

I was very pleased with this salad. Of course, I had to tweak it somewhat (don't think I've ever made a recipe without at least one change). I was afraid that it didn't have enough liquid, so ...

My grandmother added some spices that really enhanced the flavors and made the whole house smell divine: She would add a few sticks of cinnamon, 2-3 cloves and sometimes when available- 2-3 crus...

I used what dried fruits I had. No figs, so I used cherries instead. No dark raisins, so I doubled the golden ones. The apricots give this salad color, so I might add just a few more next time. ...

I'd do just cranberries and one other fruit, or maybe both figs and apricots, and serve with ice cream or greek yogurt

Like other reviewers, I used what dried fruit I had (figs, dates, currants, raisins) and it turned out well.

I loved this recipe! I've made it several times, varied it slightly; (like Paula, I used dried cherries instead of the figs), and last time I sprinkled some port over the stewed fruit, then toss...
