Here is a fun and easy recipe to make. It’s always nice to have a few of these on hand.
1 cup chopped dried apricots 1 cup sultanas 1 cup fresh orange juice 1 Tbsp. coarsely grated orange rind, preferably organic 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut 3/4 cup chopped raw pecans or walnuts
+ 1/2 cup shredded coconut
(Can be stored in airtight containers, each layer on parchment paper, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.)

Hiya and many thanks for the recipes.
In this one there is no mention of prunes in the ingredient list – but they are to be soaked with apricots and raisins in the instructions! – Are they optional extras and can we do without them as they are not my favourite!!
Hi Mary, that was a typo. They were in an original recipe instead of the raisins; I changed the recipe because the prunes were taking over the flavour of the apricots. So looks like my changing the recipe works for you.
My husband does not like raisins, could I sub figs? Or what would you suggest?
Yes you can substitute figs or prunes. Any recipe can be adjusted to make it with only ingredients you enjoy. Let us know how they work out and even better send a pic.
Do you let them stand for 8 hours in the fridge or on the bench?
I left them out on my counter with a plate over the bowl.
