Adding sugar makes this too sweet. I used dried fruit and dried silver berry instead of cherries.

A delightful ambrosia fit for the gods and goddesses! Made as is but without the golden raisins. The combination of the best nuts and sweet fruits combined with romantic rose water made a wonderful dessert with a sweet syrup as well. Thank you for sharing this! It would be a delight to make these again.

Absolutely lovely. I used only cherries (and more of them), simply because I'd bought lots of them for the kids and I needed to use them. I can imagine how nice (and pretty!) this would be with the addition of the apricots. The rose water, combined with the juices given off by the cherries made a delightful 'syrup' to dress the whole. This was simply lovely. Will make again.

This was delicious. I used dried fruit. I was not sure! I used dried cranberries instead of the cherries, and dried pears instead of the golden raisins. I also used only 1/2 cup of sugar. I served a large spoonful with a dollop of plain yogurt sweetened with honey, and a splash of rose water. Thanks for posting this recipe. I love middle eastern dishes!
