Method

  1. Tip the fruits and 700ml/11⁄4 pints cold water into a large saucepan. Add the honey and vanilla, scraping the seeds from the pod into the pan. Bring to the boil. Stir well, lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes until slightly syrupy.
  2. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the tea bag. Leave to infuse for 10 minutes.
  3. Discard the tea bag and vanilla pod, tip the fruits and liquid into a non-metallic bowl and pour over the lemon juice. Stir, then leave to cool. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Slightly pallid taste as it stands. Added pieces of lemon zest during cooking and slug of desert wine before serving. Delicious with creme fraiche.

Really fabulous and delightful warm when first made for a dessert for Sunday dinner, then lovely cold for breakfast all week with Greek yoghurt. Easy to do, very tasty and makes a good big quantity.

Used dried apples, sultanas, dried figs & dried apricots. Very yummy!
I realised at the last moment I didn't have Earl Grey tea but a bog standard teabag worked fine. Recommended.

Lovely flavour, excellent as a pudding and can be used up on museli for the next week.

Worked wonderfully following a vegetarian Sunday roast as a dessert! I threw in a small handful of dried mango, serving warm with custard, and the flavours were so comforting. Just the thing for winter, and healthy too!
