This recipe uses dried fruit and can be warmed and served over sliced pound cake, ice cream, or plain yogurt. Plan ahead as this has to marinate at least 1 day. This is from the Rayley's magazine circular.
- 2 cups chopped dried fruit (such as dried apricots, cranberries, apples, pineapple)
- 1 1⁄2 cups orange liqueur (such as Cointreau, Grand Marnier or triple sec)
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise
- Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool; discard vanilla bean.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 day or up to 1 week for fruit to absorb flavors.
- Serve over ice cream, pound cake slices or plain yogurt.
OK, these are great! I especially like it when there's a liqueur that is included in the cooking rather than added at the end, 'cause my other half is seriously into AA (celebrating a sober 13-yr anniversary this month)! So, I don't cook with the stuff the way I used to! But this worked out just fine, & the results very tasty! I included dried peaches & pears along with everything else! Many thanks for sharing!
