Freezer Apple Cinnamon Fudge
Makes 64 pieces
It's Organic Week in Canada from September 19 to 27, and what better way to celebrate than to make an organic treat.
2 cups peeled diced organic apples
1/2 cup organic maple syrup
1 cup organic raw cashews
1/2 cup organic coconut oil
1/4 cup organic tahini
1/2 tsp organic cinnamon
1/2 tsp organic vanilla extract
1/4 tsp sea salt
In a sauté pan cook apples with maple syrup over medium high heat until juices have reduced and apples are caramelized; about 5 minutes.
Scrape apples into a high powered blender or food processor; blend with cashews, coconut oil, tahini, cinnamon, vanilla and salt until finely puréed.
Line a 9-inch square baking pan with a piece of parchment paper long enough to run up two sides for easy removal. Using a rubber spatula scrape mixture into pan evenly, smoothing the surface. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired.
Freeze uncovered for three hours or until frozen.
Slice fudge with a thin sharp knife into eight pieces, then again crosswise eight times to make 64 equal pieces. Keep frozen in an air-tight container layered with wax paper.
Will keep frozen for up to one month.
