* if you are using fresh pineapple you will also need a glug of orange juice.
Place the dried fruit and seeds in a splash of the pineapple or orange juice and leave to soak ( you can do this over night if you wish)
Next peal and chop the fresh fruit into small bite size chunks
Add the fresh fruit to the dried fruit and the mixed spice in a small pan and gentle heat on the stove for about 10 minutes. You will notice form my picture that at this stage the dried fruits start to break down and produce a lovely caramel colour and thicken the sauce slightly, but the fruit still retains its shape. We do not want mush here so do not boil!
Next add the almonds and stir. Leave to simmer while you get the yoghurt ready.
Serve while still warm on top of two tablespoons (about 80ml) of natural yoghurt.
