Method

 
Put dried fruit on a large board and just work over a few times with a large knife (this helps to make it stick together).
Mix in a large bowl with jam, spices and seasoning.
Heat last five ingredients in a saucepan until butter melts, pour it over fruit and mix well.
When cool, cover bowl and leave for a few days to mature, stirring occasionally. Mix well and bottle.
It seems to keep pretty well indefinitely, which is hardly surprising considering all the alcohol!
