       Title: FIG GEMS
  Categories: Desserts, Candies, Fruits
       Yield: 1 Batch
  
      20    California dried figs
     1/2 c  Seeded raisins
       1 c  Pecan meats
     1/2 c  Confectioners' sugar
       3 tb Peanut butter
     1/2 c  Strained honey
  
   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.
