Fruit Paste

Fruit pastes make a great alternative to sugar.  Try adding a pinch of spice such as cinnamon or sea salt and a bit of fresh lemon juice to add a different flavor note.  Fruit pastes will keep for over a week in the refrigerator. You can also freeze fruit pastes for several months – they resist freezing solid, which makes it great for scooping out just what you need after letting it sit for about 30 minutes at room temperature.

About 100 grams dried fruit of choice
250 ml. water
1-2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Jack’s Fresh Tip

My favorite dried fruits to use are dates, apricots (use the sour ones), mangoes and prunes. I use fruit pastes to sweeten cakes, make ice cream and lend a sweet note to smoothies.
