If dried fruit is to be used, soak it until soft enough to chop finely. Use water from the fruit for liquid in the recipe. If fresh or canned fruit is used, drain liquid as much as possible and add only the amount called for into the recipe. Combine all the ingredients in the order given.Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until the consistency of marmalade. Add citrus fruit juices, after you have removed filling from stove and cool thoroughly before using.
