Every time that I serve these snacks I get requests for the recipe, so I finally wrote it up to share. I make the balls bigger than the original recipe called for. For nutrition info, one serving is two balls. I don't recall where I found this recipe, if you know I will be happy to acknowledge the source.

Directions

  1. Roast the pistachios in a preheated 250 degree oven in a single layer on a baking sheet for 8 to 10 minutes, rolling the nuts every few minutes.
  2. Let the pistachios cool completely.
  3. Chop the pistachios using pulse mode of a food processor, until fine but not powdery.
  4. Divide pistachios in half and set aside.
  5. Dice apricots and dates then toss in a large bowl with the other dried fruits to make it easier to grind together uniformly.
  6. Put the dried fruits through a grinder using a medium grind.
  7. Combine 1/2 of the pistachios into the mixture.
  8. Add the orange juice and Cassis and combine by hand until evenly distributed.
  9. Shape the mixture into 1" balls and roll the balls in the remaining pistachios.
