Just posted this on my newsletter this week. I add new recipes each week in case you are interested to join: http://www.vt-fiddle.com/rawfood/raw-food-newsletter-archive.php Caramel Apples - don't waste this on the trick or treaters! (did I really write that? Oh I'm sorry!) :-) Ingredients * 1 fuji apple, washed * 4-5 medjool dates * water or lemon juice if necessary * pinch of celtic sea salt, ground * ¼ cup hazelnuts, chopped Wash the apple and dry. Set aside. Use a thick chopstick and poke into the center of the apple. In a food processor, add the dates, pinch of salt and a dab of water or lemon juice to keep the processor moving. Blend until a thick paste. Spread the date paste onto the apple and then roll into the chopped nuts. Enjoy!
