Yum, PA Baker. I bet the coconut adds great flavor, but would it be OK to leave it out. I am allergic to it.

Allergic to coconut? Yes, I'm sure it would be fine, SC! I bet you could even add something else to give it a new twist, like very finely chopped dried mango or papaya.

Actually, it is not the coconut. It is the sulfites that it and other dried fruits are preserved with. Sometimes I can find items sulfite free. Thanks for answering my question.
