A delicous and healthy fruit pudding that is easy to make. My grandmother passed this recipe to me over 60 years ago, however, I made some adjustments to the recipe. Grandmother made this pudding from the dried fruit that she prepared when the fruit was in season.

I have seen and tasted this dish first hand. It was delicious! The combination of flavors and texture were amazing. Although the recipe is written well I doubt anyone could recreate such an amazing dish. It makes so much, it would take 3 people, at least a month, to finish eating it. While it does seem too sweet, from someone such as my brother, I find it, mild. It's delicious, hot! Is there a way to make this thick pudding, into a pie filling?
