    hi, as for ingredients A do we still use back the soaking liquid (tea & brown sugar)? do we need to dredge the fruits with flour so that it dont sink at the bottom?

    I would like to know what type of dried fruit you used. I am now soaking cranberry, figs, dates apricots and kiwis for the green color)

    • In this recipe, my contributor used dark and golden raisins, green cherries, etc. You can mix your own fruits like currants, raisins, dry apricot. etc. No limitations. As long as gathered together to make the required quantity.
