We modified this a bit by adding dried cranberries and blueberries to the other dried fruit while stewing. Then we mixed the whole batch into a regular fruit salad (canned chunky fruit in natural juices plus fresh apples oranges & bananas). It was easy fabulous and delicious and even the little kids loved it; for the first time in 10 years people came back for seconds on the fruit salad at Thanksgiving! Read More

I took a lot of effort at doing exactly what the recipe said. The amount of liquid was too much. Can't say the recipe tastes bad but it didn't turn out as expected. Read More

I asked my sister to fix this for our Thanksgiving dinner. I enjoyed the mixture of the fresh and dry fruit. It might be nice to add some dried cranberries for a little touch of tart. Read More

Very tasty! I used it as a side dish with a pork roast and it was wonderful. The only thing that I did differently was I did add a few dried pears that I had left over from a Christmas Swiss bread recipe which complemented the rest of the fruit. Will definitely make again. Read More
