I purchase dried fruit in bulk, so when my eyes fell upon a recipe in a book titled Rawsome! by Brigitte Mars, I set about soaking raisins, figs, and apricots...
Dried Fruit Jam
½ cup raisins
½ cup dried figs
½ cup unsulphured dried apricots
1/8 tsp ground cloves + 1/8 tsp cinnamon (These are my additions… nice flavor.)
Soak fruit overnight in a small amount of water (just enough to cover). Blend the fruit in a blender, adding just enough of the soak water to reach a jamlike consistency. (It requires very little.) Store the jam in the refrigerator, where it will keep for about two weeks.
