I almost always enjoy fruit soups, & your recipe makes a very satisfying one, for sure! I did use a package of mixed fruit, but another time I might just pick & choose what dried fruit I want to include, like chopped apricot, date, apple, peach, pear & . . . ! Used some not-terribly-sweet strawberry syrup ~ REALLY GREAT, & thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Bargain Basement tag]
