  • 100 gram(s) dried apricots
  • 100 gram(s) mixed raisins, sultanas and currants
  • 100 gram(s) soft prunes, stoned
  • 50 gram(s) sweetened dried cranberries
  • 50 gram(s) shelled pistachios
  • finely grated zest of an unwaxed lemon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1  ground cloves
  • up to 2 tablespoons each honey and ground almonds as needed
  • 150 gram(s) granulated sugar

Method

  1. Work the apricots, raisin mixture, prunes, cranberries and pistachios through the finest blade of a mincer into a bowl. Sprinkle over the zest, cinnamon and cloves. Mix well, adding a little honey if too dry, or a spoonful or two of ground almonds if too sticky.
  2. Put the sugar in a shallow dish. Form small spoonfuls of the fruit mixture into balls by rolling them between your palms. Roll the balls in the sugar, then set in individual paper cases. They can be eaten at once, or kept for a week or more in an airtight container.
