Other dark-coloured dried fruits such as blood plums, cranberries and barberries would work well in this mix, too. Soak the fruit in muscat instead of brandy for an even richer result. You’ll need to begin this recipe at least a week ahead. The mixture will keep stored in a dark place for a year, so you could always make extra to use for next Christmas.
