Healthycooking's picture
Ingredients
  Dates 1 Pound, pitted
  Dried apricots 1 Pound, soaked in water for 30 minutes; then drained.
  Seedless raisins 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Pecans/Walnuts 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Unblanched almonds 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sunflower seeds 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Orange 1 Large, washed, cut into eighths and seeds removed
  Currants 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Coconut shreds 2 Cup (32 tbs), unsweetened
  Cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
  Lemon juice 3 Tablespoon
  Honey 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Sesame seeds 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), toasted for 20 minutes in a 200°f
Directions

Force the dried fruits, nuts and orange sections alternately through a food chopper or grinder, using a coarse blade. (By alternating the dried fruits, nuts and orange sections as they go into the grinder or food chopper, it will require less mixing and will also prevent fruit from becoming too sticky.)
Include sunflower seeds with nuts.
Add currants, coconut shreds, cinnamon and lemon juice to ground fruit mixture and mix together thoroughly.
Blend in the honey.
Pack mixture firmly into a nine inch loaf pan which has been lightly oiled.
Cover with sesame seeds and refrigerate overnight to chill thoroughly before serving.
Cut into slices and serve.
