Figs are not in season, but they are sooooo tasty!! That’s why I purchased cases of them and froze a bunch so that I could eat them at any time of the year. When looking for something else I stumbled upon these in my freezer and immediately I thought “Fig Spread”. So here it is. I don’t know who started spreading mashed fruit on things but I find it a very clever idea. A very delicious and clever idea. I don’t generally buy jam or jelly as it is packed with sugar. I will eat homemade jam that someone has gifted me though. Nothing like homemade goodies to make me temporarily forget that refined sugar is evil. At my house though, we stick to fruit sweetened jams if we buy them. Trader Joe’s actually has a brand that I don’t mind my kids eating. Nonetheless, I still generally choose to not eat it regularly. Making my own is a different story. Since I love eating raw breads, I enjoy switching up what I top them with. After letting the figs thaw, this spread was so quick to put together. And so incredibly delicious. I can see this going great with some porridge, or yogurt, or anything you typically enjoy fruit with! Ingredients:
- 1 cup thawed figs (you can use fresh but the texture will be different)
- 2 TBS honey
- 1 TBS almond butter
- 1/2 tsp lemon juice
- Put everything in a food processor and blend until well combined
- store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week
This looks absolutely delicious!
Mmmmm figs. Oh how I miss them. Smart to buy a case and freeze them!
Oh figs! I was allowed to pick from a fig tree once in my life and it may have been the happiest moment in my life.
Mmmmmm freshly picked figs, the best of course!
