Coconut Apricot Candy

This is an easy and delicious sounding recipe from a 1929 pamphlet cookbook featuring coconut. No baking! I have to try this one!

3/4 cup dried apricots

3/4 cup Baker’s Coconut, Premium Shred

1/2 cup nut meats

1/2 tsp. grated orange rind

1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Wash apricots and steam 5 minutes. Put apricots, coconut, and nut meats through food chopper. Add orange and lemon rind and lemon juice and knead mixture until blended. If candy is dry, add enough additional orange juice to moisten. If too moist, work in a small amount of confectioners’ sugar. Shape into balls about 3/4 inch in diameter. Roll in granulated sugar. Makes 18 – 20 balls.
