Potato Candy – Recipe #1
Ingredients (use vegan versions):
- 1 cup mashed potatoes
- 1 cup pulverized sugar, approximately (? I used vegan powdered sugar)
- 2 cups chopped mixed dried tropical fruit
- 1 cup nut meats, chopped
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
In a large bowl, gradually mix vegan sugar into potatoes. When mixture
begins to thicken, add pineapple, cherries, nuts, vanilla and almond
extracts. Knead in as much additional vegan sugar as mixture will absorb
(I stopped at 1 1/2 cups to avoid a cloying result.)
Pat into a buttered cake tin and let stand in a cool place for 24
hours. Then turn out and cut into slices.
Makes about 2 pounds of Potato Candy.
