Fig, Apple and Walnut Paste

Delicious with soft cheeses and crackers

Converted from CSR Sugar website

Makes 24 x 1\3 cup muffin sized pastes

Ingredients

3 large granny smith apples, peeled (probably no difference if you dont peel)
Juice of one lemon
3 cups of Jam setting sugar (600 g but i would reduce next time )
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/4 cups dried figs ( about 200 g)
125 g walnuts toasted

Method
Chop the dried figs 6-8 secs Sp6 set aside

Chop the toasted walnuts 2 secs Sp4 set aside separately

Peel and quarter apple blend 10 secs Sp 8 scrape down and repeat until you have smooth paste

Add to the apple in TMx, the lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon and figs

Cook 90 degrees, 35 minutes Sp 2

Stir then cook another 2 mins on Varoma temp Sp 2

Stir thru walnuts 5 secs Reverse  Sp2. ( I actually put my walnuts in with figs and cooked as I misread)

Pour into muffin tins that are lined with plastic wrap or foil muffin cases.

Leave to set overnight. turn out and serve with cheese and crackers.

Hi I didn't core my apples and next time i wont peel them either. should keep the same length of jam if you store in sterilised jars. the little patties turned out of the muffin cases look great on the cheese plate.

GHM I bought a roll of this in the Adelaide Hills and I gutsed the whole lot myself. It was amazing. I was going to give it a go when I got home and you have done it for me. Thanks. 😍
