Recipe by Susiecat too
This comes from an Empire Kosher cookbook. I haven't yet tried it, but will soon. Note that it is kosher for Passover.

YUM! I was going to use a package of mixed dried fruit that I was sure I had (but didn't) and skipped the raisins, but threw in some (fresh) apple slices. I used apple juice instead of the wine, and almost filled up on the smell alone! WHAT A GREAT TASTE! It was also easy to throw together. Thanks so much for a refreshing, different dish for any night of the week!
