Nearly half way through! I’ve only made the following once, but it was pretty tasty.
Nut & Raisin Spread
1 medium orange
1 cup broken pecans
2 1/2 cups light raisins
3/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing (like Miracle Whip)
orange slices, celery sticks, or assorted crackers
DO NOT peel orange. Quarter and seed orange. In a food processor bowl, process orange and nuts, covered, till finely chopped. Add half of trhe raisins and all the mayonnaise or salad dressing. Cover; process till raisins are chopped. Add remaining raisins; cover and process till finely chopped.
Transfer to a covered container; chill. (Or, place in a moisture and vaporproof freezer container; seal, label and freeze up to 3 months. Thaw in refrigerator several hours.)
To serve, spread on orange slices, celery, or crackers.
