These fillings and spreads would be a sweet addition to your homemade sandwiches.

Orange Filling
2/3 cup soft butter
2/3 cup orange marmalade
2/3 cup coarsely crushed walnuts or pecans

Cream butter, marmalade and nuts together.

**This would be wonderful spread on crunchy whole wheat bread that is topped off with salad greens such as arugala, mesclun, and or baby spinach.

Raw Apple Filling
3 tart apples
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons cinnamon sugar
1/4 cup currants
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Peel apples. Grate them on a coarse grater so that the apple pulp is in shreds. Discard cores. Add all remaining ingredients. Use as soon as possible to prevent apples from darkening.

**Yummy on an open-faced sandwich. Lightly butter and toast a slice of pumpernickel bread, add butter lettuce leaves and heap on the raw apple filling!

Prune Filling
1 cup cooked prunes, pitted
1/2 tablespoon lemon rind
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
3 tablespoon melted butter
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/2 cup coarsely crushed walnuts
2 tablespoons sugar

Grind prunes or chop them fine. Stir in all remaining ingredients.

**Spread this prune filling on your favorite bread, crumble blue cheese over the spread and top with thinly sliced red onions…yum!
