Fresh Maple-Fig Spread
Feel free to add more fresh figs if you want to highlight the fruit even more. If you only have dried figs on hand, rehydrate them in warm water and puree away.
Serves: 1 cup
  • ¼ cup cashews or almonds
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • 6 medium-sized fresh figs
  • ½ to 1 tablespoon maple syrup (can sub honey or agave)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  1. Grind the cashews or almonds somewhat into a powder (I use an electric spice/coffee grinder). Add all ingredients to your food processor, and pulse, chop, or blend to your desired consistency. I made mine fairly smooth, but with some walnut chunks. Feel free to adjust the sweetness, salt, and spices as desired.
