Help making all natural nut clusters
My mom bought some all natural nut clusters that had a variety of nuts and fruits in them and were held together by clear syrup/sugar mixture. I am trying to determine what in the ingredients is that "paste" to bind these all together.
The ingredients are: cashews, almonds, pistachios dried cranberries, dried blueberries, natural flavor, sesame seeds, rice malt, and evaporated cane extract.
I am guessing the paste is the rice malt or evaporated cane extract but I know nothing about either. Does anyone know what these two ingredients are? Can they be purchased in the store? Is there something I could use as a substitute?
Thanks so much in advance! :)
