Ingredients
  • 180g dried berries (I used sour cherries and blueberries)
  • 4 dried apricots
  • ½ an apple
  • Zest and ½ the juice of an organic/unwaxed orange
  • ½ tsp mixed spice
  • 3 tbsp (45ml) brandy
Method
  1. Chop the apple and apricot into small pieces (about the same size as the dried berries) and place in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the mixing bowl and stir until combined.
  3. Store in a sterilised 500ml jar for at least three days before using. Turn/shake occasionally to mix the ingredients.
Notes
I like to keep the dried berries whole, but feel free to chop them if you want a more traditional texture.
I've used dried berries because I like the flavour and they come without added oil, however this recipe will work just as well with sultanas etc.
