Wonderful. Made half as only me and husband. It only took just over an hour with half the mixture. - 14 Jun 2015

There were a lot of complaints on this recipe(on the other listing as it appears twice). This recipe works great with a few modifications. 1. You can use any type of dried fruit to equal 6 cups total that you like, ie light/dark raisins, chopped dried apricots, dried cherries, cranberries, currants etc 2. Add 1 extra cup butter. Use a mix of sugars ie white, brown and splenda to equal 2 cups. 3. Add some cinnamon/nutmeg to enhance flavor 4. Finally and this is the key set the timer in 1 hour increments so it does not over bake as baking time of 3 hours will probably overbake and dry it out. 5. For those who like this you can add a couple of tablespoons rum every few days til Christmas and this also makes it moist and tasty. - 10 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
