Everybody's Favourite

Updated: Jan 7



This is a very old recipe that my mother often made. We lived on a sugar cane farm and visitors often arrived unannounced. She could quickly throw it together and serve for afternoon tea

I have no idea what its real name ever was, but, it got its name because it literally was, "Everybody's Favourite" It is very easy to make, cooks quickly and keeps for a week...if it ever lasts that long! You can use other fruit like cranberries, chopped dates or apricots if mixed fruit is not your "thing" but Mum always had a packet of mixed fruit in the pantry on the farm for just such occasions. I love it with mixed fruit!
