Fruit Candy for Christmas

My mother loved fruit desserts.  Fruitcake, fruit bars, Christmas puddings, sauces, and cookies with fruity bites.  This morning I have been going through her recipe file and found this delicious sounding recipe for Fruit Candy.  It's simple, easy, and healthy.  It's a nice last minute treat for the Christmas!

Fruit Candy

1 pound figs
1 pound dates
1 pound raisins
1 pound nut meats
1 Tbsp. orange juice
2 Tbsp. honey (or agave syrup)

Grind the fruuit and nuts through a fine food grinder.  Add orange juice and honey.  Mix well.

Line a pan with wax paper.  Then fill with fruit candy mixture.  Level and smooth the top.  Weigh down with a heavy object.  Leave for five hours.  Then cut into squares.


  1. Sounds pretty yummy, La Tea Dah. Thanks for sharing. Susan

  2. Oh that does sound good. I may try a smaller batch if I have enough ingredients. Thank you!

  3. I would love this one. Anything with fruit is my favorite dessert. This also would be lovely with tea.
