Former PCC nutrition educator Rita Condon made this delectable mix for gifts each year.



  • 1 cup whole almonds
  • 1 cup whole cashews
  • 1 cup walnut halves, broken in half
  • 1 cup pistachio meats
  • 1 cup shelled pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup pine nuts
  • 1 cup Duchilly filberts (or other variety of hazelnuts)



  • 1 cup sultana raisins
  • 1 cup dried apricot halves, cut in quarters with kitchen scissors
  • 1/2 cup dried tart cherries
  • 1/2 cup dried bing cherries
  • 1 cup dried apple juice or sugar-infused cranberries


Combine raw nuts on a baking sheet and roast at 300º F for 15 to 20 minutes, until nuts turn golden and fragrant. While they are baking, watch them carefully so they do not burn.

Combine dried fruit in a bowl and mix well. Add roasted nuts and mix until thoroughly combined.

Cool and store in an airtight container for 3 days at room temperature, or up to 1 month in the refrigerator or freezer.
