A wonderful confection from The Times-Picayune. It was under their "Emergency recipes" category - I can see how this would do well for camping or situation where power was not readily available for meals.

- 1⁄3 cup dried fig
- 1⁄3 cup raisins
- 1⁄3 cup dried apricot
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons honey

- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons orange liqueur
- 1⁄2 cup almonds, toasted slivered, ground
- Combine dried fruit, honey, and spices in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Add the pecans, slivered almonds, and orange liqueur and process until just combined.
