  • Dried Fruits - 2 cups
(I used ½ cup raisans,1/4 cup sultanas, ¼ cup currants, ⅛ cup dates, ⅛ cup candied peels, ⅛ cup prunes & ⅛ cup of mixed dried fruits like strawberries, kiwi, ginger, pineapple & cherries)
  • Rum or Orange Juice or Wine - 2 tblsp

  1. Take all dried fruits in a bowl add some rum or orange juice or wine and toss well. Let it steep for 1 to 2 days.
