Overview:

It's Organic Week in Canada from September 19 to 27, and what better way to celebrate than to make an organic treat.


Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  1. In a sauté pan cook apples with maple syrup over medium high heat until juices have reduced and apples are caramelized; about 5 minutes.

  2. Scrape apples into a high powered blender or food processor; blend with cashews, coconut oil, tahini, cinnamon, vanilla and salt until finely puréed.

  3. 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.

  4. Freeze uncovered for three hours or until frozen.

  5. 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.

  6. Will keep frozen for up to one month.
