from Jennifer L.’s book, North Branch , MN
1 lb mixed dried fruit
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c. raisins
Soak fruit in water to cover. Carefully cook in covered saucepan so pieces remain whole. When fruit is tender, add sugar and salt and simmer ten more minutes. Drain off about 2 c. juice and put in double boiler. Add raisins and tapioca. When cooked, add to fruit mixture with cloves and cinnamon stick. Let stand covered until cool. Chill thoroughly before serving with a dollop of whipped cream.
Place cloves and cinnamon on threads to be sure to pull them out when cold.
