Winter Spiced Fruit

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Chef Kate

A foolproof recipe, you can vary it by using other dried fruits and/or spices. You can use ruby or tawny port--no need to use a great vintage here, but do use something drinkable. I think it is worth it to seek out organic dried fruits.

Mmmmm.... delicious. Goes great with cheese board as well, especially blue cheese.
