I made so many changes I wasn't sure whether to write a review or a new recipe! First, I used fresh orange juice and plenty of orange zest. I replaced the prunes with dried apricots, halved the butter, and added honey. Tasted very good and orange-y.



a bit sweeter than other recipes I've tasted



i added a handful of raisins (for my raisin loving guests) and added honey towards the end instead of more sugar. also a bit of nutmeg or cinnamon really brings out the flavors. but a great recipe to tweak! thanks :)
