Hi Robin, I am looking for a really good one too. I must add though that I always use the NZ Otago apricots, as the Turkish ones don't have the taste or tang.I had some frozen cherries which I sugared and boiled up, going to use thoseas well.I used to have a really good one which was all mixed in the bowl together, no eggs or butter - was the best !

Let the recipes come rolling in ! Thanks om advance.
