My DH used to tell me about soaking dried fruit to make refreshments.I tried it with water,but I plan to do the juice version too.I made one with sour cherry (which DDs preffered) and one with sour plums,which turned into a soda.The water soaked up the flavor from the sour cherries,but the plums' was there and my one-and-half year old DD really liked them.These can be frozen and enjoyed as popsicle.I really enjoyed them at the beggining of my second pregnancy,sour and salty.Probably that's why my DD likes them now.
My third grader sister was doing a project on Eygpt and I made this for her class.. super easy but had rave reviews.. A real kid pleaser!
This is a very easy and tasty recipe. I've been plumping my raisins this way for ages. Other juices and different dried fruits work equally well; lemon juice with currants or apricots is very good, too. Heating up the liquid and then steeping the dried fruit hastens the process. The plumped fruits are very nice in baked goods, as well. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Jamilah!
DD actually didnt like these which is surprising because she loves juice of which I used orange and she loves raisins! They plumped up nicely overnight and do taste good. They would be good on oatmeal I think if you like raisins on yours. Maybe even try on vanilla ice cream? This dish was new to me. I know some recipes call to do such before adding to the rest of the ingredients. Made for Ramadan Tag.
