|GLUTEN-FREE NUTTY FRUITY BALLS|
I had lots of fun adapting this recipe from the original, mainly because I didn't have the right ingredients in the cupboard. The original recipe, from Ricegrowers' Co-operative Ltd, used 1/2 cup of rice bran instead of cornflakes, dates instead of mixed dried fruit, 1/2 cup of mixed peel instead of grated orange rind, ground hazelnuts instead of whole mixed nuts, and 1 tablespoon of honey instead of my 2 tablespoons of rice syrup.
Place cornflakes, dried fruit, citrus rind, nuts and brown sugar in a blender. Process until well chopped. Add brandy and rice syrup and process again until the mixture forms a ball. Form into small balls and roll in ground hazelnuts.
Refrigerate for a few hours before serving. Next time I think I'll try dried apricots and chocolate bits . . . or perhaps glace cherries and chocolate . . .
