Dried Fruit and Coconut Candies

1 cup dried apricots
1 cup dates, pitted
1 cup raisins
1 cup walnuts
1 cup shredded coconut
3 T. lemon or orange juice
shredded coconut, for coating candies

In a food processor, place the apricots, dates, raisins, and walnuts, and process for 1 minute to finely chop the ingredients. Add the coconut and lemon juice and process an additional 1-2 minutes or until mixture comes together to form a ball. Place some shredded coconut on a plate and set aside. Dampen hands with water, roll the mixture into 1-inch balls, and then roll the shaped balls in the shredded coconut. Store the candies in an airtight container.

*Note: These candies can also be frozen for later use.
