8 (about 1/2 cup each)
3 green tea bags
3 1/4 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
3 cups mixed dried fruit, such as apples, apricots, pears, figs and/or raisins
Steep tea bags in boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove tea bags. Stir sugar and lemon zest into the tea. Cut any large pieces of fruit into halves or quarters. Place the fruit and tea in a 4-quart or larger slow cooker. Cover and cook until the fruit is plump and tender and the liquid is syrupy, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours on high or 3 1/2 to 4 hours on low. Transfer to a bowl and let cool slightly. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
