Used different ingredients. This is a fantastic recipe! We have a pear tree and this is a tasty way to use them. I add dried cherries to the fruit mix and 200ml of brandy just prior to processing. - 24 Jul 2008
I used mixed spice because it smells nicer and more christmassy. Apart from this I stuck to the recipe, DELISH! - 23 Nov 2014
Put this over cream cheese, spread over ryvita, and it is absolutely WONDERFUL! Everyone that I have served it to has asked for the recipe. It takes awhile to make, but isn't hard. - 24 Jul 2008
