I let the fruits soak for a time in a rose water/water mix as it was really over dry and needed the moisture back. Then I used only 2 Tbsp of Splenda for the sugar which, for me, was plenty of sweetness as these fruits are already quite sweet on their own. I also added a very light bit of dried mint and I think that made it just right in taste. Made for The Lands of Figs and Apricots Tag in the Middle East/North Africa forum.
Although not out to break any fast, I did make this with the indicated ingredients, including the almonds, dark raisins, pistachios & rose water! We do enjoy dried fruits (as well as ones that are fresh or frozen!) so this was well-received at the table! Loved the combo of fruity flavors! Thanks for sharing it!
