Figs, fresh from the tree.
Crispy. Sweet. Salty.
|We started by toasting the hazelnuts (350 degrees, about 10-12 minutes) and |
then removing their skins by rubbing them in a textured towel.
|Then, we processed the nuts alone for about 7 minutes, until they started to form a paste. |
We added some cocoa powder and powdered sugar.
After processing that, we added a little canola oil until the texture became more spreadable.
|This is the finished product!|
|We only had the phone with us for pictures this whole weekend...I apologize...|
This is on the hike out to Lake Margaret.
