Really, Truly Gorgeous Dried Fruit Salad

Really, Truly Gorgeous Dried Fruit Salad

PixiePixiePixie

"A really, truly gorgeous dried fruit salad that i serve in the evenings to share with my mum and sisters over a good movie. I use organic pine nuts, and rain forest honey... of course, you don't have to, but sometimes these little touches help, I think. Add the pine nuts however much or little you like 'em, about 2 ounces is good for me. I serve this in sundae glasses, to show off the fruit, with plain yogurt and a sprinkling of Demerara sugar."

  • Ready In

  1. Place the figs, apricots, prunes, cranberries, raisins, and golden raisins into a bowl. Pour in just enough water to cover. Cover the bowl and soak overnight, at least 8 hours.
  2. Pour the fruit with the soaking water into a saucepan. Stir in the pine nuts and honey. Bring to a simmer; cook, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is tender but still holds its shape, about 30 minutes. Remove from the heat; return the fruit and liquid to the bowl, being careful not to break up the fruit. Cool to room temperature.

My grandmother added some spices that really enhanced the flavors and made the whole house smell divine: She would add a few sticks of cinnamon, 2-3 cloves and sometimes when available- 2-3 crus...

I was very pleased with this salad. Of course, I had to tweak it somewhat (don't think I've ever made a recipe without at least one change). I was afraid that it didn't have enough liquid, so ...

I used what dried fruits I had. No figs, so I used cherries instead. No dark raisins, so I doubled the golden ones. The apricots give this salad color, so I might add just a few more next time. ...

I'd do just cranberries and one other fruit, or maybe both figs and apricots, and serve with ice cream or greek yogurt

I loved this recipe! I've made it several times, varied it slightly; (like Paula, I used dried cherries instead of the figs), and last time I sprinkled some port over the stewed fruit, then toss...

Like other reviewers, I used what dried fruit I had (figs, dates, currants, raisins) and it turned out well.
