Obst Moos (a.k.a. Pluma Moos)
20 cups water
1 pkg seedless raisins
1 pkg dried prunes
1 pkg dried apples
1 cup dried peaches
1 cup dried apricots
1 cup dried cherries (we use frozen sour cherries)
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
5 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1 pkg cherry jello
Boil plums in water for 10 min.
Add the remaining fruits and cook until they are barely tender.
Add cloves, cinnamon, salt, sugar, and jello and continue to cook on low-medium heat until all fruit is cooked and soft.
Check for sweetness. But be careful, you don't want to make it too sweet.
Delicious to serve warm or cold. Allow to come to room temperature before refrigerating or placing in a cold location.
NOTE: We leave the dried fruits as is, but some people cut the apricots in 1/2 and the larger fruits into quarters to make everything more bite-sized.
