4 large yellow onions
1/4 cup avocado or vegetable oil
3-4 cups soft pitted prunes
1 cup of dark or golden raisins
½ cup chopped dried apricots.
Rind of one orange
¼ cup orange juice
1 tsp of cinnamon
3 cloves (optional)
¼ cup Silan (pure date syrup)
¼ cup honey
¼ cup of toasted almond slices, for garnish
Using a food processor or mandolin, slice onions thinly.
Warm oil in a large casserole pot over medium heat and add onions. Sauté the onions and stir continually until soft and golden.
Add the prunes, raisins, apricots, orange rind, orange juice, cinnamon, silan and honey and stir well.
Cover pot, lower heat and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, making sure not to burn the mixture on the bottom of the pot. If mixture appears too dry, add a little water.
Garnish with toasted, sliced or slivered almonds.
