Dried Fruit Compote


      4 pounds Mixed Fruit, Dried
      1 1/2 cups Orange Juice
      1 1/2 cups Water
      1/2 cup Sugar (Optional)
      1 Lemon -- sliced


    For the dried fruits you can use any combination of prunes, apricots, apples, pears,  figs etc. I've even found dried sour cherries - yummy!
    Place your packaged dried fruits in a large bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit for  about an hour. Drain.
    Place the fruit in a large pot with the other ingredients. Bring to a boil, lower the heat  and let simmer gently for 30 - 45 minutes, or until the fruit is tender but not falling  apart.
    Let cool and taste to see if more sugar, lemon or orange juice is needed.
    Store the compote in its syrup in the refrigerator.

    For a more "grown up" taste, I use 1 cup of orange juice mixed with 1/2 cup of  brandy or cognac
