Shoe leather balls

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
¾ pounds Dried Apricots
¼ pounds Dried Peaches
\N \N Superfine Granulated Sugar

Use only VERY, VERY dry dried fruit. Put the dried fruits through a food grinder, coating a board with fine sugar, placing the fruit on top, rolling the fruit ⅛ inch thick with a rolling pin, and cutting it into 1-inch strips. To accomplish this, it is absolutely essential that the dried fruit be very, very dry. If you end up with fruit that is too moist and too sugary to roll, simply form the fruit into small balls with your fingers and top each ball with a nut, cherry, or a sprinkle of coconut. Either way, it produces tasty candy. Store your shoe leather or shoe leather balls in the refrigerator. Yield: 1 pound.
