1 cup red and/or green candied cherries, quartered
1 package (6 ounces) dried apricots, chopped
1 cup chopped walnuts
In a small bowl, combine apples and orange juice; set aside. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and nutmeg; add to sugar mixture just until blended. Fold in the cherries, apricots, walnuts and apple mixture.
Transfer to a greased and floured 9x5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Cut with a serrated knife.
