Pecan - Cardamom truffles
If possible, ground your own cardamom, as the taste is so much fresher and more intense. An easy way to do this is place 3 tablespoons of cardamom pods in a high-speed blender or coffee grinder, and roughly grind. Use a strainer to sift the ground pods, discard the shells and grind the bigger chunks again to a finer powder.
makes 15 -20
12 large medjool dates, pitted
50g dried cranberries
100g dried unsweetened shredded coconut
100g raw pecans
2 Tblsp extra virgin coconut oil
2 tablespoons of freshly ground cardamom
1 Tblsp water
1 tsp ginger powder
Place all the ingredients for the pecan-cardamom truffles in a food processor, and pulse for about a minute or until the mixture comes together. Take a small amount of the mixture and roll into small round balls; half the size of a golf ball. If you are having trouble with the mixture coming together, place the dough in the fridge for 15 minutes. Rolls the balls in finely chopped toasted pecans or shredded coconut. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes before serving. Or package them into a jar tied with ribbon or raffia for a holiday gift offering.
