Default Edworts Apelwein, has anyone tried adding fruit or berries?

I was just curious if anyone has tried adding fruits such as strawberries, cherries, blueberries etc to edwort's apfelwein recipe?

If I was to try it, do you think I should add fruit to the primary or secondary? or both?

I have only put in finely grated ginger root, finely grated lemon peel from half a lemon (just the yellow outer skin with almost no white) and the strained juice from two medium lemons. I also threw in a cinnamon stick and about 10 cloves. I loved it right until it turned into vinegar on the 7th day but there wasn't much left at that point anyway.

Oh, I used Lalvin 71B-1122 and added two frozen apple concentrates to the mix. I am going to make this one again in a few weeks once I get 5 gallons of unpasteurized apple cider.

I racked at 4 weeks because that is what it seems people do when they put fruit in the primary

I'm planning to backsweeten mine with apple juice concentrate. Somebody on here did it with apple-cherry/apple-raspberry concentrate and I thought that might be even better, so I might try that.

I have a batch with 5 pounds of dried sour cherries in it now- good and tart, but still in the carboy.
