Oh yah! This is good.

Hi, I actually joined this site so as to be able to comment on this recipe!
It's fantastic. Really easy but looks and tastes like it took forever!
I am also happy to report that a combination of plums and apricots, which needed using up from my fridge, make a great variation on this recipe.
