  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Fruit, Russian, Christmas

 Ingredients List

  • 4 oz Dried Prunes; Pitted
  • 4 oz Raisins
  • 8 oz Dried Apple Slices
  • 8 oz Dried Pear Quarters
  • 1 c Honey; Clover Or Wild
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 6 Whole Cloves
  • 2 qt Apple Cider
  • Juice And Peel Of 1 Lemon


Combine the fruit in a large pot and fill with enough cider to cover it by
a third more. (The fruit will absorb a lot of liquid.) Add the cloves
and lemon peel. Simmer until the larger pieces are cooked but not falling
apart. Pour off the liquid into a pan and cook until reduced by 1/3rd.
Add the honey, cinnamon, lemon juice, and fruit. Reheat, stirring.
Taste, and add more lemon juice if needed. It should not be cloying
sweet, the taste of the fruit should dominate. Serve warm in crystal or
clear glass bowls. Keeps in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
