    2       c            Coarsely chopped pecans
    1       c            Powdered milk
                         -(1  3.2-ounce envelope)

    1       c            Dried apricots -- coarsely cho

    1       c            Dried prunes or dates

    1       c            Dark raisins
 
   Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Combine all, or as
   many of these ingredients as you can put together, in
   a huge bowl. You will probably have use your hands to
   turn the mixture over until it is thoroughly combined.
   Divide between 2 jelly-roll pans and toast in the
   preheated oven for 1 hour. Stir the ingredients well
   every 15 minutes, turning them over to be sure that
   nothing burns on the bottom. Remove the pans from the
   oven and allow the mixture to stand for about 1 hour
   until it has cooled completely. Pack into apothecary
   jars, old-fashioned candy jars, or other airtight
   containers. It keeps indefinitely---or at least 8
   weeks, which is quite a long time. Makes about 16
   cups. Source: “An Edible Christmas” Cookbook by Irena
