    Very versatile fruit dish that's easy to prepare. My favourite dried fruits to use are raisins and dried apricots.

      I made this yesterday and refrigerated it. For the dried fruit I used crytallized ginger and papaya mixed and omitted the fresh ginger Lovely flavor combination. I served it with a bit of vanilla yogurt. This would be wonderful as a dessert

      I really wanted to love this. Really I did. I tasted all the fruit before I put it in (except the cranberries), and the end product was bitter. Really bitter. I don't know how I went wrong!? It was edible with lots and lots of ice cream, but I'm not sure what to do with all that is left. I may try to add some more sugar or something. I will try this again and hope that maybe I just got bad fruit...because I love the idea of this recipe. I'm so sorry!
