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!
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.
