Spiced Mixed Fruit (Salad)

Glenda Moore


This recipe is good for late fall days and not as much fresh fruit available to make but I am a fan of dried fruit. On Occassion have taken to big Family meals. We all just love the mixture of fruits and do alot of them in the spring and summer but this is a bit different and great for a Christmas dinner. Christmas dinner always calls for more plums it is traditional.
I like this used like a salsa to be eaten with pork.
The cook time is broken into 2 sections, 35-40 and 15-20
