Fig Gems Recipe

Step 1

Warm your food grinder. With medium blade, grind figs, raisins and nuts. Stir together with sugar and peanut butter. Add honey to soften enough to make fruit pliable. With your hands, make balls the size of small walnuts, and roll in confectioners' sugar. Place on a pretty plate or tray, surround them with figs stuffed with candied cherries or nut halves, for festive (but fast disappearing) centerpiece.
