Combine the dried fruit in a large bowl and add enough hot water to cover by 1 inch.
Let the fruit soak for 25 minutes, then dram well.
Place the soaked fruit, brown sugar, brandy, butter, salt, lemon juice, lemon zest, orange zest, and water in a large saucepan over high heat.
Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 30 minutes.
Pour the compote into a bowl, cool, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Or you may also serve the compote warm.
