It is a local favorite here in Hawaii. I make this every year during the Holidays for gift giving. Either use mason jars or Holiday themed canning jars or plastic Holiday containers that have tight covers. Add a bow on the top, and it looks so festive. Besides it's "ono" delicious! The photo is not mine but it looks exactly like how is should be.

4 pkg
apricot, dried
4 pkg
pitted prunes, dried
2 pkg

plums)
YOU CAN ALSO SUBSTITUTE THE DRIED FRUITS FOR

Aloha Jewel, Good Morning! I don't consider anyone ignorant, especially with food! LOL It's somethin' that you snack on, like a bag of chips. I imagine that it's versatile enough to change up the liquor.
You are very welcome! I am glad that you enjoy the recipes that I have posted. Happy Thanksgiving! Mahalo and Aloha! Jo
