Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon soybean oil
  • 1 Cup soy nuts, roasted and salted
  • 1 Cup assorted dried fruit, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup brown rice syrup
  • 1/4 Cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

Directions

Line a 11-by-17-inch pan with foil and grease the foil with the soybean oil. Combine the soy nuts with the dried fruit. Spread them onto the prepared pan in a single layer. Stir the brown rice syrup, brown sugar, and salt in a small saucepan until blended. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil until a candy thermometer reaches 270 degrees, about 3-4 minutes. 

Immediately pour over the soy nuts and fruit. Quickly and carefully stir until coated. While hot, seperate into clusters using a spoon. Cool completely before serving.
