DIRECTIONS

  • Soak dried fruit overnight in fruit juices.
  • If this does not cover the fruit, add enough water to cover.
  • Next day, add chopped lemon [I usually add the lemon zest, juice, and pulp but not the entire lemon].
  • Place in blender to soften hard pieces.
  • Cook over low heat until fruit tastes cooked, about 8 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add spices& simmer until thick, about 10 minutes longer.
  • Pour into hot, sterile 1/2 pint jars, leaving 1/2 inch at top.
  • Cap with hot, sterile lids.
  • Process in boiling water bath for 5 minutes after water returns to boiling.
  • If any jars fail to seal, refrigerate& use within 10 days or freeze.
