   NOTE: Any combination of fruits may be used as long as you have about 10
   tablespoons.
   
   Stir the mustard and cold water together in a bowl mixing until all lumps
   are gone. Let the mixture stand for 3-4 hours. Simmer the orange zest in
   about a cup of water for 5 minutes. Drain the chop them very fine. reserve.
   If the dried fruit is not tender, cover the pieces with boiling water and
   let stand for 5 minutes then drain well. Combine the drained orange zest,
   the vinegar, and the sugar in a medium-sized saucepan and boil the mixture,
   uncovered over medium heat for 5 minutes or until the syrup has thickened
   somewhat. Stir in the salt, add the fruit and the mustard mixture. Stir the
   mixture over med-high heat until it comes to a boil and thickens smoothly.
   Remove from heat. When the mustard has cooled, taste it and add lemon juice
   to taste. Scrape into a clean jar or jars, cover and place in refrigerator
   to marry the flavors. If it should thicken too much upon standing, thin it
   with more lemon juice or with water.
