    With this much dried fruit in any recipe it is sweet enough, but adding more honey or treacle should sweeten the pot if required!

    1. Mix all the ingredients together and pour into a 500ml jar. Allow to soak for at least 1 day, though the longer you leave it the stronger the flavour.


    Make sure there is enough liquid to cover all the mixture - it'll soak in I promise!
