Really easy to make. I added some chopped dates (the sort you get at Christmas time that no one usually eats) to the chopped apricots. It says they will last a week - not in my house they won't! - 25 Feb 2013

awesome recipe! I used 400g of fruit and berries(cranberries, raisins, currents, saltanas etc) instead of the recomended fruits (loved it). - 30 Nov 2013
