Dried Fruit and Nuts

Nov/Dec 2015

From Glen Manzer

1 c. 35% whipping cream

1 T. icing sugar

1 envelope vanilla sugar

1 c. each, dried pears, apricots, cherries, cranberries and blueberries

1-1/4 c. dates

1-1/4 c. each, walnuts and whole, natural almonds

Whip the cream until soft peaks form, then add the sugars and whip until just stiff. Arrange the fruit and nuts on a large platter or board and serve the whipped cream on the side. You can use any nut or fruit of your choice. Of course, you also need a box of mandarin oranges to eat with this! Serve the nuts and fruits with a dollop of whipped cream.
