    A really, truly gorgeous fruit salad made of soaked dried fruit that I serve in the evenings to share with my mum and sisters over a good movie. You can also have it for breakfast with muesli or porridge. You can use different dried fruit and add the pine nuts however much or little you like them.

    Serves: 12 

    • 250g dried figs
    • 250g dried apricots
    • 250g prunes
    • 75g dried cranberries
    • 75g raisins
    • 75g sultanas
    • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
    • 1 tablespoon honey

    Preparation:8hours  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:8hours30min 

    1. Place all the dried fruit into a big bowl and just enough cold water to cover. Cover with a clean tea towel or plate and leave to soak overnight, or for about 8 hours.
    2. When soaked, carefully put into a saucepan along with the soaking water, adding the pine nuts and honey. Simmer gently for half an hour, stirring every once in a while.
    3. Take off the heat and put back, still with the soaking water, into the bowl to cool. Be careful with the fruit as it will be tender and easy to break up.
    4. When cold, serve in sundae glasses (to show off the fruit) with plain yoghurt and a sprinkling of sugar if you like.
