    Mischka's Note:

    When served warm this is a great fruit dessert for those cold winter nights. I serve it with good quality Greek yoghurt. Or, serve it chilled with icecream. Or with pancakes for breakfast. This is a favourite with my family. It can be varied infinitely too - so don't worry if you don't have all the ingredients. This comes from Stephanie Alexander's Cooks Companion. Australian measurements used.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Put all the dried fruit plus the cinnamon, cloves, honey, saffron, vanilla and lemon zest into a sauce pan. Add cold water to just barely cover the fruit.
    2. 2
      Place on stove on a low-medium heat and slowly bring to simmering point. Cook for 15 minutes, gently stirring once during this time. Remove from heat.
    3. 3
      Cool to desired serving temperature - remove cinnamon & cloves (if you can find them). Just before serving stir in the almonds, pistachios and a few drops of orange flower water (or to taste).
    4. 4
      Note: if you prefer you can place the cinnamon & cloves into a muslin bag to make removal easier.

      Was surprised that I easily found orange flower water, but it was no problem at all! Rather than the round, donut-shaped dried apple, I used dried Fuji apples, which are sooo good! Along with the other ingredients here, this was a very tasty salad, although I actually thought of it as a fruit compote! Whatever it is, it's definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing!
